How Henry the 8th fit in to British history had escaped me for years. Wandering through the 3 distinct architectural spaces at Hampton court gives a tangible sense of the 3 eras in British history , the families, and their personalities. Wander the gardens and spend a full day. By all means get the headsets to hear the explanations. If... More

Hampton Court Palace was an amazing place to visit for those interested in King Henry VIII. It is a beautiful palace. We happened to visit on a day that reenactments were occurring. The actors were amazing and entertaining. We learned a lot from them! They also had musicians stationed throughout Hampton Court Palace. The gardens were beautiful. It is also... More

What a great day trip! Hop on the train, see the landmarks, learn about the history and view the fine art of tapestry, statues, garden and furniture. You can visit some shops or eat lunch at the eatery in the garden. You can also try to find your way out of the maze. All one entry fee except the purchase... More

You need a full day to see everything, plenty of places within the grounds to eat and drink. Be prepared to walk and walk so wear comfortable shoes!

Arrived on a cold winter morning to enjoy Hampton Palace at half price (available on the Internet) got to enjoy a skit performed by two actors - love token - essentially about Anne Boleyn's attempt to persuade Henry to adopt Tyndale's paper about the king being the head of the church - instead of the Pope - well performed and...

Best visited on a dry day. Visited with a 5 and 7 year old. They weren't interested in going inside but the Garden's were very good and the kitchen garden was good to see where food comes from.

Having lived in Molesey my entire life, I've visited Hampton Court Palace countless times, It's always interesting and inspiring, it's also a great place for family's and young children. My friends kids never seem to get bored here, regardless of how many times they visit. Sometimes I feel guilty, walking past Hampton Court every day... not too guilty though. Go... More
