A visit to this wonderful palace, steeped in history, is not to be missed. The audio tour is one of the best I have ever used, informative and really backs up the tour wonderfully. The Henry VIII part of the tour really was fascinating and very interesting ... Touring the kitchens, great hall, "below stairs" and apartments was a super... More

We spent most of the day at this Palace. There's lots to see and all exhibits are very well presented. We chanced upon their local historian who is the spitting image of King Henry VIII - it was spooky as it looked as if he'd just stepped out of a photograph! Recommend this attraction.

We stayed locally on the Saturday evening, and so we were able to visit this beautiful place on both Saturday & Sunday. We had prior booked online, & by doing so saved a few pounds, & our tickets were posted to us in advance. It's difficult to pick out favourite parts there, but tops were Henry VIII's kitchens, & William... More

The palace is well worth a visit. There is a lot to see and the audio tour is very good. It is a bit expensive and the maze is not worth the £4:40 you pay (it's better to get a combined ticket) if you just go to that alone. There are plenty of staff to answer any questions you have.... More

Surprisingly, given our status as OAPs, neither my wife or I (we were only married just over four years ago) had ever visited Hampton Court Palace before. We began our visit by meeting up with some 'old friends', who lived just a few miles away, for a 'light lunch' on the delightful terrace outside 'the Tiltyard Restaurant' then said farewell... More

Easy to access from central London by train to the Hampton Court station a stone's throw away this is a must for any garden and/or history enthusiast. Well worth the field trip or make it a full day!

A must for those with an interest in English history. The kitchens alone are vast, almost a small town in their own right. Children (and adults) will enjoy dressing up in the tudor clothes supplied and will be in awe when they meet Henry VIII in the great hall!

It was an easy train ride from london Waterloo station. The tudor part is amazing. Wished you could see the rest of the palace but a lot of the Georgain side blocked off.

An easy tube/train ride from London, I absolutely love Hampton Court Palace. As one of the few remaining places you can see remnants of Tudor architecture and in particular, Henry VIII's architectural legacy, I was amazed by the Palace. The Great Hall in all it's glory with original tapestries commissioned by Henry VIII and remnants of all his wives are... More
