Beaumont Palace built outside the north gate of Oxford was intended by Henry I about 1130 to serve as a royal palace conveniently close to the royal hunting-lodge at Woodstock (now part of the park of Blenheim Palace). Its former presence is recorded in Beaumont Street, Oxford. Set into a pillar on the north side of the street, near Walton Street, is a stone with the inscription: “Near to this site stood the King’s Houses later known as Beaumont Palace. King Richard I was born here in 1157 and King John in 1167”. The “King’s House” was the range of the palace that contained the king’s lodgings.
