If you love your Tudor or Georgian history, then you can't really beat HCP. Beautiful and well looked after palace on the outskirts of London. Visited as a child and then again recently, and it seems to get better each time. So much history to take in, and the audio guides were really informative.

There is so much to see, both inside and outside the palace. The maze is great fun, the gardens are beautiful and the palace itself is full of interesting & historic items. A great day out for adults and children alike. It is not a cheap day out though

We recently spent an afternoon here - arrived at 1 and left after 6 and there were still bits we didn't have time to explore. We were lucky that it was a very sunny afternoon and not busy and had a great time exploring the various rooms, gardens and maze. We also grabbed something to eat in the cafe -... More

A place not to be missed. This palace is amazing. It is beautifully maintained and they often have great exhibitions and themes running. It's not so big as to not be possible to see it all in one visit. The grounds are a delight in the summer, in particular the rose garden.

I would say you need a good full day here to really appreciate your visit. We were limited to time and therefore were only able to see half of the attractions within the house and a quick glimpse of the garden. Would have loved to visit the maze

Hampton Court Palace was my favorite palace we visited. It has so much history in its uniquely designed architecture. We could spend an entire day there!

My husband and I had a wonderful time at Hampton Court. The history is so interesting and the grounds are beautiful. The gardens are a must see along with Henry VIII's Kitchens

A super place to visit period.DO NOT expect to leave this place in a couple of hours. The classical period plays on site were a nice touch to the palace. Great places to eat,if so desired.
