Take some time to learn a little about the history of Hampton Court before coming, it made out trip much more interesting. The actors really get into character and it helps to bring some entertainment to the visit. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask the wardens, they were all very knowledgable and friendly. We didn't try for... More

Went to Hampton Court Palace for several hours. The entry fee includes an audio guide and access to the royal gardens. There were several school classes there for a field trip and the youngsters seemed to really enjoy seeing how the royals lived two hundred years ago. So this would be fun for the whole family. The audio guide was... More

My husband and I took our young grandson yesterday thinking this would be a lovely, Christmassy experience for the little one to see. It's wasn't. It was just full of people milling around, people selling and.....nothing else. We couldn't even sit outside in the (albeit cold) sunshine and have a coffee as the lovely seating area was cordoned off. I... More

Two years ago we'd never been inside Hampton Court until the Xmas fair. The rooms where the fair is held are stunning and access to the grounds and gardens included in the price of £3.50 is an absolute bargain. So we visited yesterday for our third year's visit and a walk by the riverside. The stalls are very interesting and... More

This was a really good day out. £3.50 to get in I thought was really reasonable. The stalls were lovely, lots of handmade items for all ages, lovely atmosphere. Prices of items on stalls very good. Lots of people there even though it was a Friday. Be prepared to wait 30 minutes if you want anything to eat or drink... More

Excellent for garden enthusiasts; history buffs; children - the whole family can enjoy a variety of enjoyment. Great for walking along the river and in the woods or find your way out of the maze. Regular special attractions throughout the year. Cafe and toilet facilities; ice cream shop too.

I have just returned from Hampton Court Castle in the beautiful countryside of Herefordshire. The Castle is beautiful from the outside and once inside the venue, my room was immaculate. We took a wonderful and entertaining tour of the inside of the Castle on arrival and the tour guide Susan was very entertaining about the site's colourful history. The staff... More

We arrived at a car-park in a field with very large ruts and puddles which should have alerted me to what was ahead,. went through a homemade gate and the path way was completely under water so but I had no choice but to go through the middle of it. Arrived at the gift shop where you buy your ticket.... More
