Hampton Court Palace is somewhere my wife has wanted to visit for a long time. Rather longer than I care to admit, in fact. So we went, finally, and what a treat it was! Everything was just fabulous, and there is loads of history to take in and admire. However, despite the pretty awesome history, it felt very relaxed and... More

If you have little ones, bring extra clothes. There is sand and water and lots of fun to be had. If there are 2 parents, I suggest splitting up and one visiting the castle while the other watches the kid(s) at the play ground. And then you can switch.

This is a place for kids to explore with towers for clinbing and exploring ,a dragon for clambering , a sanded area with some water ( not a splash pool). The artificial grassed areas are great for sitting down to a picnic and supervising the younger element. Its well supervised but when it gets busy you may have to vacate... More

This huge palace and it's gardens are a great place to visit to gain insights into the lives of Henry VIII and his court. Don't miss the kitchens.

We were 4 adults and 2 children. It was the hottest day of the year and the children wanted to go into the Magic Garden. It was so hot the slides were closed. Which was a pain but not the main issue. The main issue was the lack of shade. Knowing full well the weather I think they could have... More

Visited Hampton Court Palace on Tuesday 16/08/2016. Wonderful day out with a visit to all the apartments and rooms in the Palace. You also have audio guides which is like a history lesson in itself. In the kitchen they were cooking on the spit, roast beef for a function later. It was great to see that children were able to... More

Visited on a Sunday and didn't find it too busy. My son who is 12 really enjoyed all the Henry VIII things he even wore a robe! The gardens are lovely. We were especially excited to go in the Maze which Initially I thought was a bit small and was disappointed however it didn't take long to get lost! It... More

When I asked my 11 year old niece what she liked best on our trip to London she said Buckingham Palace and Hampton Court. HC for the gardens, the kitchens, and the history on Henry the 8th. Such a wonderful place for both kids and adults. I have been a few times but this was my first time seeing it... More

We've visited here quite alot and I have to say its always really good - usually with an excellent dramatisation about Henry 8th or James 1st or any number of fascinating historic figures. Our last recent visit featured Shakespeare rehearsing Hamlet and interrupted by James 1st and his wife - superbly done and hugely entertaining! We also visited William 3rd's... More
