full day of activities from the live actors around the court, to cooking your own meat in the kitchens, singing along in the main hall, and fortunate to see a one off concert in the chapel and if the weather is suitable the gardens are enjoyable too

Not as enjoyable as others in the HRP portolio but an interesting day nonetheless. The Henry VII chambers and kitchens were my favouite parts (worth getting the free audio guide for these), as were the gardens. The Young Henry Exhibition wasn't so good. Overall I spent a full day there though. The gardens were very pretty though the maze was... More

We went out to Hampton Court Palace during a recent trip to London. What a brilliant place to visit. The palace is fascinating and parts of it have been designed with children in mind, I mean the exhibits of course. The staff were helpful and gave additional information, they obviously enjoyed their work. As the weather was cold we didn't... More

Lots to see and do - the hand held information devices were excellent - staff helpful - need a whole day to do the site justice - one word of warning if you need to have a lunch break - either bring your own or use the Tiltyard cafe - don't bother with the one inside - over priced -... More

What a wonderful experience. There is so much to see and do. You can spend so much time here, transporting yourself back to the times of Henry VIII

This is an amazing palace & the effort that's been put in to make it user-friendly is excellent. From the audio tapes to the exhibits, fabulous gardens, very attractive cafes & the excellent interpretations of the main characters by actors, this place really 'grabs you'. We learnt so much more about the characters which was great. Free parking in Bushey... More

I don't normally do attraction reviews but having just been to Hampton Court Palace, I felt I had to say that if this is somewhere you are thinking of going for a day out, then go for it. My main reason for doing the review though is to say make sure you get there early, as close to opening as... More

Platform 2 at Waterloo station takes you there. About half an hour on the train. The palace is visible from the train stop and at mst a 5 minute walk. Tickets are best pre-booked as it can be busy. There really is a lot to take in and one visit was no-where near enough for me. My favourite bits? The... More
