This place is a must if you are into history and our tour guide made this a wonderful excursion for us. As soon as you step on the grounds you are transported back in time, because the staff are dressed in garments based on that era. I especially loved the artwork and the kitchens, for me the best place was... More

This is one of our favourite places to visit. It never fails to impress and usually, there are people dressed in period costumes to add to the effect. Some good restaurants opposite too!

Fantastic huge palace with a garden and maze where you can spend the whole day. Hope you spend it not in the maze but in the palace.

Spent the morning, could have spent the whole day - so much to see and do and this was only inside the palace, will definitely return for the gardens and maze

Fantastic exploring a lot of the rooms here! Don't miss the Tudor kitchens - well worth the effort to get there by train and bus! This is a must visit for Tudor fans!

Bucolic palace on the outskirts of London...take a regional rail train (Southwest Trains), but you can use your oyster card for the fare. We had fun getting lost in the maze, discovered that was something my husband always wanted to do. The audio guides are full of lots of information and one could easily spend half a day here if...

Amazing architecture and one can definitely see the difference from the original palace to the various additions made throughout the years. Our guide gave us so much information on the monarchs who lived there and how each left his or her personal mark on the property. So many rooms and the Tudor kitchens - such vast spaces! Absolutely fabulous gardens... More

Amazing place. Steeped in 500 years of history ; entry price was reasonable when you see how big the place is. And consider how much it must be to maintain , we started off looking round the gardens really lovely to see , inside Hampton court is just mind boggling so much to see. Room after room. And long corridors... More
