Excellent, you could spend a full day here easily, kids too. The guided tour recorder things are free and their are about five or six different tours. Lovely coffee shop, restaurant etc. every hour or so their are actors playing scenes amongst the public, it's really good. Easy to get to on the underground- overground from central London (about £6-50)... More

Thus place Is so impressive. £16.50 for an adult ticket is a reasonable especially when that includes access to the BBC Good food festival. There is so much to see and learn here, the art on display incredible! All the staff are friendly and knowledgeable, they are happy to enlighten you on any subject to do with Palace and it's...

We visited with our extended family on a sunny August weekend. Naturally it was filled with people- but apart from the cafe it never felt crowded. Henry VIII palace was amazing, including the tapestry on the walls. On top of that, various programs including musical recitals in the great hall added to the atmosphere. My kids loved the maze. There... More

Visited here on a hot August Saturday. Arrived from central London around 11.30 and not very crowded at all. Good value for money as entrance ticket includes maze, gardens, palace and an audio guide. My favourite part was the Great Hall and the gardens. Would definitely come again to spend more time in the gardens as was too hot on... More

A fascinating day out delving into 500 years of history. The palace is divided into eras and all the displays and tableaux are very well done. Children can dress up and have their own version of the audio guide (included in the price). The house and gardens are beautiful, the staff are excellent and so knowledgeable. Thoroughly recommend going -... More

Celebrated the place's 500th anniversary with friends. Never expected the place to have been restored so much since my last visit. At last minute's notice a BSL interpreter joined us and helped us guiding us around checking out every part of the historical place including the court's kitchen and collection of paintings. Members of staff were great as they ensured... More

We had a lovely day here. There is a lot to see and do. The palace has several different sets of state rooms, an art gallery, kitchens, a chocolate room and an exhibition about young Henry VIII. Outside there are formal gardens and a wilderness area, vinery and maze. It is all very interesting but watch out as they close... More
