The title of "palace" was first used to refer to it during the twelfth century, when it was favoured by King Henry I of England. In about 1120 he created a zoo in the grounds. His grandson, Henry II was also fond of Woodstock, and spent time here with his mistress, Rosamund Clifford.

Woodstock Palace was destroyed during the English Civil War.
