The palace is well worth a visit. There is a lot to see and the audio tour is very good. It is a bit expensive and the maze is not worth the £4:40 you pay (it's better to get a combined ticket) if you just go to that alone. There are plenty of staff to answer any questions you have.... More

Surprisingly, given our status as OAPs, neither my wife or I (we were only married just over four years ago) had ever visited Hampton Court Palace before. We began our visit by meeting up with some 'old friends', who lived just a few miles away, for a 'light lunch' on the delightful terrace outside 'the Tiltyard Restaurant' then said farewell... More

Easy to access from central London by train to the Hampton Court station a stone's throw away this is a must for any garden and/or history enthusiast. Well worth the field trip or make it a full day!

A must for those with an interest in English history. The kitchens alone are vast, almost a small town in their own right. Children (and adults) will enjoy dressing up in the tudor clothes supplied and will be in awe when they meet Henry VIII in the great hall!

It was an easy train ride from london Waterloo station. The tudor part is amazing. Wished you could see the rest of the palace but a lot of the Georgain side blocked off.

An easy tube/train ride from London, I absolutely love Hampton Court Palace. As one of the few remaining places you can see remnants of Tudor architecture and in particular, Henry VIII's architectural legacy, I was amazed by the Palace. The Great Hall in all it's glory with original tapestries commissioned by Henry VIII and remnants of all his wives are... More

We visit a lot as the Palace is local, this time was to have lunch and a potter and we were delighted to find the Glorious Georges tour, which we did independently of the guide. Lunch in the Cafe was greatly improved since I last visited, the jacket potatoes were served with salad making a 'proper' meal. All the staff... More

This place is amazing, you get a robe and the kids too and you can feel like a king or a queen roaming the place. The tour is guided by a speaking device and a brochure that is a bit confusing. I have been with kids and we did get separated so make sure you give each other a meeting... More

We loved our visit and thought it a great way to teach our children about life in tutor times. I think the palace can easily be done in 3 hours. We thought the food offered in their cafe terrific and particularly enjoyed our very knowledgeable guide Sandy.

If you're in the London area, don't miss a visit to Hampton Court Palace. If you love history, then it's hard to beat - all those stories about Henry VIII and Cardinal Wolsey! The courtyard & clock are magnificent. Inside, Henry VIII's kitchens, are impressive, as are Henry VIII’s apartments. William III apartments are also interesting - much of the... More
