Spent the day here today with my dad and two children aged 15 and 9. We used audio guides which were very informative and helpful. We all easily became absorbed in the history and beauty of the palace. We managed to do the maze which was fun. The gardens are lovely but we did not explore it all due to... More

We went over Bank Holiday Weekend, while the BBC Good Food Show was on there. We didn't get into the Palace until after lunch and remained until closing time (6ish). We did see a fair bit of the Palace, but will be going back to see the rest of it soon and the gardens. How they have set up the... More

Fantastic day out. History at its best. Interesting tour dialogue delivered by personal headsets so all done at your own pace. Fascinating!

It was £14 for Seniors or £15.40 with a donation to visit the Palace. Perhaps I was a bit mean but I decided they would be doing all right with £28. We spent a long day there from 10.30 am to 5 pm. However, if you didn’t use the free audio guide and just wandered through the rooms in the... More

There is something for mots people, history by the bags full excitement in the maze for the young and lost feeling for most lovely display of daffodils & cheery blossom in the spring. The best place to Red deer with there full 14 point antlers, seeing them on a hill in the highlands ruining away from you is nothing to... More

I recently had American friends visiting London for a short break, and I wanted to show them something quintessentially British. What better place to choose than Hampton Court Palace. As one of the visitors has a mobility problem, I was given TWO wheelchairs - one for the Palace and an electric one for the Gardens and Grounds. We spent four... More

I loved everything about this except the audio guide- it needed to be easier to use but was still very informative - the cafe was a bit expensive but the soup was delicious. The entire Palace had me mesmerized - especially Henry VIII's kitchens and great hall. It was easy to get to - tube, then train, a short walk... More

I find it hard to be anything but positive about Hampton Court Palace. It's a beautiful place, in lovely grounds. The price is very steep though, and it can feel touristy rather than truly historical with costumed guides and the style of the audio guide. However, the bare bones of the place have such history and the amount to do... More

This is a must-see place for anyone visiting London. It's worth it to devote a full day to it, with at least half the day in the gardens. The palace itself is a real treat, with lots of history about Henry VIII. They have reenactments regularly during the day, and you can get a photo with the good king himself... More

Very interesting history - particularly the story of Henry VIII and the associated rooms and exhibits. Perhaps the most interesting feature, for me, was the tour of the kitchens and the explanation of how a small army of servants fed the entourage of the King. Not sure this would keep the attention of children, but, for adults this is a... More
