Exploring the palace is simply wonderful. There is so much to look at and admire. The palace is so wonderfully preserved and the staff were happy to answer questions too. The gardens were fantastic to sit down to have lunch in and relax.

I took a group of 100 people to visit Hampton Court yesterday. The weather was perfect and so we saw the incredible gardens at their very best. Thousands of tulips amongst wallflowers - the scent was amazing. I had organised 3 guided tours for my group and our guides were great, telling us of the history and other goings on... More

Lovely place to visit when the sun is shining. I didn't go into the palace itself, just went around the maze (spent around 40 mins in it). The maze was fun but I thought there couldn't have been something a little more interesting when you reached the middle. It was nice just to walk around the gardens and enjoy the... More

This was an amazing step into the past being the home of Henry iiiv and William iii. Amazing artworks and stunning gardens. Took the horse drawn carriage ride around the gardens which was lovely. High recommend this to all.

The most wondeful palace, great gardens, a Maze, fabulous gardens, the kitchen, the paintings, everything about it is wonderful. Plus the Thames in all it's glory. A day to never forget. Thank you Cardinal Wolsley.

I have been wanting to visit for a long time and thought the gardens were beautiful, we took a shire horse and cart trip around the gardens this was lovely in the sunshine with very helpful guide. Royal chapel closed for sunday service but used headphones and looked around everywhere else, really interesting. Parking gets very busy later on.

Great grounds, soaked in history, kitchens are worth a visit . good for a family visit. If you can combine with a trip down the river, do. When we visited there were displays and actors, my daughter got to dress with Anne Boleyn, trying on some of the attire of the period

Been twice now. If you love history then you can't go far wrong. Exploring the palace, bed chambers, kitchens and everything in between really feels like you are stepping back in time. Also the grounds around the palace are beautiful, especially in nice weather. Interesting, fun and just a great day out.

Sometimes Hampton Court Palace has some of the best parts closed off. e.g the Royal Chapel may well be closed all day Sunday because it is being used for services. Simliarily the courtyards can be converted for shows so that all you see is a lot of scaffolding carrying seats for concerts or plays and I have on one occasion... More

Visiting Hampton Court is a really excellent way to get a better understanding of what it was like to be royalty in Tudor times. From time to time at Hampton Court they have special events such as firing up the Tudor Kitchen when you can see authentic food being cooked and eaten by costumed guides. Not only is there the...
