We were in London for the Chelsea flower show and decided to visit Hampton court the next day. We arrived just after opening at 10 am and had a wonderful full day. Didn't have time to do all we wanted and left at closing. All the staff we spoke to were great. Friendly helpful and fun. Veronica who took us... More

On our trip to London we had planned for all of the main attractions....the Eye, Westminster, Tower of London, etc....but we decided to take a break from the city and decided on Hampton Court Palace. I was glad that we did because this was one of best days I spent in England. **Big Tip** we picked up an attraction guide... More

For anyone even remotely interested in Henry VIII Hampton Court should be a stop on your trip to London. Perched right on the Thames only 30 minutes from Westminster it makes for the perfect 1/2 day trip. A primary residence for much of Henry VIII's reign, it's a stunning piece of Tudor architecture. With massive courtyards and intricate brick chimneys... More

it is 17.50 to get in but you really need all day to get the full benefit. We got round most of it in three hours but missed all the playlets and live features and didn't have time to chat to attendants who all appeared knowledgeable from snatches of conversation overheard. The cafe seems a bit undersized for the number... More

This is a wonderful day out for the family. The Palace is huge and the gardens are divine. Take a rug and your own food and have a picnic to save money. If you do want to have lunch in a restaurant there is a conveniently placed Zizi's just across the road from The railway station just before you cross... More

This is my favourite royal palace. It has wonderful history and its architecture is stunning. You can really get a sense of the lives that were led by the people during Henry VIII's time here. It is situated next to the Thames and is flanked by 2 parks, Home Park and Bushy Park, both of which have free roaming deer.... More

We wanted a castle tour close to London. We were able to get here by public transportation. It was OK...a little Epcot-like. We actually enjoyed the pub down the street more. Next time, when we have more time, we look for something a little more authentic.

Hampton Court Palace is a very historically informative London palace. It is a great building with a lot of interesting facts about Henry VIII. However beware, little remains of the original H8 palace and is extremely minimal as most of it was rebuilt much later. It's a beautiful building and the audio (in with the price) is a must to...

The Henry VIII apartments are the most interesting part by far. The Great Hall is stunning and has good placards explaining some of its details such as carvings with Anne Boleyn's initials. They were supposed to be removed after her downfall but some remained. This hall also had fabulous original tapestries with good explanations. I thought I remembered from a... More
