We took visiting friends to Hampton Court Castle. After a cup of coffee with "yummy" cakes we joined a guided tour of the castle. Our guide was an excellent lady who described the evolving history of the castle, and owners, past and present. Most interesting and enlightening, she described everything in a clear and measured fashion. The tour took about... More

Often seen the signs and finally visited this wonderful attraction. Only had time to see the gardens, which are fantastic - need to see them again in the summer, autumn and winter. Looking forward to tour of the property

The Castle itself was quite bizarre: left empty and neglected, it was bought in the 1990's by a wealthy American who furnished it with more than a nod to Hollywood ideas of mediaeval-ness. For us, the star was the gardens- look out for the modern sculptured figures dotted around. The Water Gardens were wonderfully tranquil, and we particularly enjoyed the... More

I visited with elderly parents and aunts with varying degrees of mobility. The castle and gardens were stunning in the sunshine and the cafe was the most beautiful glass house eatery I have seen. All were able to enjoy the gorgeous gardens and extensive lawns, and even the riverside walk. Loved how the gardens were divided into small room like... More

We visited this castle and gardens on a recent visit to Leominster, What a lovely place this is the first Hampton Court which was built 100 yrs before the one in London. We spent a good 5 hrs looking around the castle (thanks Ruth for the tour) and beautiful gardens & maze, we found plenty of quiet spots in the... More

Spent a day here on an organised coach outing and enjoyed everything. Had coffee and biscuits on arrival followed by a guided tour of the house. Our guide was both amusing and informative and obviously loved her job. There were definitely some wow factors in the house tour. We then had a picnic in the grounds followed by a pot... More

I've visted Hampton Court Gardens before and have always enjoyed the gardens at various times of year. It's fairly compact but with plenty of interest. There are river walks to enjoy too, and be careful not to get lost in the maze! The Orangery cafe is well worth a visit, and I enjoyed a delicious cream tea there. It's a... More

Only wish I had read up on Henry VIII before going to this amazing place. Sooo much history surrounded by the most beautiful gardens you will ever see. Audio guides were great. Wish I had more time to discover it all. Arrived by train and took a boat cruise back to Westminster (warning it leaves at 3 and takes 3.5... More
