Later the Georgians lived here and destroyed much of the Tudor style and replaced it with Baroque style. The visit will take 3-4 hours minimum,... More

I took my Husband & 2x young children to Hampton Court Castle today. There was a medieval reinactment event, with battles, stalls & demonstrations. We also had a potter around the gardens & discovered the sunken garden with a waterfall we could walk behind ! We also found the cheaters way to the centre of the maze. The cost of... More

Although we did not go into the castle as the price and the fact its a guided tour only put us right off. The gardens are fantastic. Good maze too. The water features are interesting. The only down side was not enough of it wanted more.

A wonderful afternoon spent at Hampton Court Castle, lovely surroundings and a very informative Tour Guide, Sharon, who told us so much about the castle and its owners, past and present. I would recommend a visit there any day, and the café is well worth a visit.

Have been here many many times and it still has so much to enjoy, if you like gardens with park land walks its for you, has some great garden ideas and a fabulous water feature hidden behind the maze. Excellent wide paths for access with a push chair or wheelchair, orangery restaurant for a smart cuppa or a ice cream... More

The grounds are lovely. Our guide Susan was a hoot. Took lots of pictures and had insight into some interesting owners. Would recommend a visit.

We visited this venue on a lovely sunny September day. We were impressed by the gardens which were extensive and well maintained. We opted for the Guided Tour of the castle - it was interesting hearing about the various owners of the castle and changes which have been made throughout the centuries. Our guide Gill spoke clearly & concisely. We... More

Was super cool going to where King Henry VIII spent so much time! Loved the castle and really loved the privy gardens. Quickly passed through the Young Henry exhibit. One of the best parts of the day was finding the cafe and a table in the sun - our cappuccino and Georgian Chelsea buns were divine. Recommend the audio guide... More
