What a great day out visiting the once palace of King Henry VIII. We were lucky enough to be informed on the way that we could obtain entry for half price by downloading the app online up until February 6th. There might still be bargains like this if you look. You can pick up a free phone once inside that... More

It may be superfluous to add another review of such an extraordinary landmark but despite my high expectations I was still surprised and impressed with unexpected discoveries at every turn. From a historical perspective, it was a primary setting in the turbulent times from Cardinal Wolsey and Henry VIII through Charles I. Henry's only son was born there. The architecture... More

I suppose I am biased as I grew up 5 minutes walk from the Palace, so taking my family back to revisit my weekend walking regiment was particularly special. However that being said, the grounds, the Palace itself and the its incredible beauty and history did not disappoint. Just a beautiful stroll through the gardens does wonders for the spirit....

We arrived around midday and spent most of the afternoon exploring the palace and gardens. The maze was great fun. The cafes excellent. Staff helpful everywhere you went. Well worth a visit anytime of the year. So much history in a stunning setting.

We stayed at the Georgian House in the grounds of Hampton Court Palace and it was one of the best self catering stays I've had. The Georgian House whilst not cheap was worth every penny and if you can get a group of 8 of you together it works out very reasonable. The house has a double 2 twins and... More

We travelled there by train from Waterloo Station. There are trains every 30 minutes. The station is located close to the Palace just over the bridge. The price for adult entry is £18 but by booking on the internet beforehand is only £9. There is a lot to see from Henry VIII to later Kings and Queens' apartments. We had... More
