Nonsuch Palace was built in Surrey after King Henry VIII destroyed the church and village of Cuddington, near Epsom.
Construction of Nonsuch Palace began on April 22nd, 1538, at the anniversary of King Henry VIII's accession.
The royal palace was built between 1538 and 1547.
The southern face of Nonsuch Palace had the Renaissance decoration and tall eight-sided towers at each end.
Nonsuch Palace was called Nonsuch Palace because there was "none such" (none like it) anywhere else.
Nonsuch Palace was completed at a cost of at least 24,000 pounds.
An oriel window with heraldic glass and Tudor paneling is believed to have been removed from Nonsuch Palace and used at Loseley House.

And it no longer exists.........

" It returned to royal hands in the 1590s, and remained royal property until 1670, when Charles II gave it to his mistress, Barbara, Countess of Castlemaine. She had it pulled down around 1682–3 and sold off the building materials to pay gambling debts."

Nonsuch was erected on the site of the church and village of Cuddington near Epsom in Surrey. Henry VIII had the village demolished. It was built at a cost of at least £24,000 in order to compete with Chambord in France, the palace of Henry's great rival, Francois i.
