Visited on the best day during the week everyone at work and the sun shining. English heritage at it's best stunning gardens, amazing history and informative staff. Other than it being a good day for foreign exchange students perfect, you can change routes to avoid the groups and take at your leisure. The Royal Chapel ceiling was breathtaking.

I spent two days exploring this wonderful Royal Palace. Words cannot do it justice. The place is just amazing, I personally prefer the Tudor Palace best. I found the staff were extremely informative and helpful. They were happy to go the extra mile to give you a really wonderful experience. I congratulate them. One Tudor Serf I spoke to over... More

Plan your day because there is plenty to see in this beautiful British landmark. Besides visiting the royal appartments you can attend the time plays or the children's activities if travelling with a family. The program of «500 year in a day» starts at 11 a.m with Henry VII and its court and finishes at 4:15 p.m with a toastat... More

The last few reviews are right on target - it is amazing and you can, and should, spend hours there. We visited on Easter Sunday, and while there were crowds, it is SO big that we felt we could still get around and see everything just fine. What is most amazing is how well preserved things are; you really get... More

Visited on a Bank Holiday so very very busy. Used public transport to get to the Palace so cannot comment on the car parking facilities for disabled drivers. From the ticket office onwards the staff are plentiful & more than willing to help with any access problems for disabled visitors. There is at least one Electric mobility scooter for visitors...

I loved the history of this beautiful palace and it has been on my bucket list for some time and I wasn't disappointed. The kitchen area was particularly fascinating and they actually had the fire and spit working roasting beef. There are interactive actors roaming the grounds lending atmosphere, my only criticism would be that maybe they could have just... More

This is inexpensive with reasonable parking and a free audio guide. Firstly my complaints. Signage to the Palace is poor and I spent quite some time driving around trying to find the entrance. Also the preamble with the audio guide is completely confusing with menus and submenus. Please state early 'type in the number and push play' - that is... More

We had a fantastic day we were there for 6 hours!!! The maze was a bit of a disappointment but the rest of the grounds and the palace were great. Take your own food as it was nearly £25 for 3 cakes and 3 hot drinks!!!

The gardens were glorious. The Till Yard Café was good. Staff very helpful but not easy to get from one floor to the other by lift. Loved the little historical sketches performed from time to time. Much too much to do in one visit.
