We had a really wonderful day and enjoyed ourselves very much. I'm fascinated by Tudor history and I think this is the best place around London to visit if you are too! I will hopefully be visiting again soon and buying a Historic royal Palaces membership!

If you are only going to do one castle tour near London, do this one. You can see the entire complex including the grounds. Tour is educational. Money saving tip: take the train from Waterloo station. The bus tour does the same audio guide tour.

We spent a few wonderful hours wandering around Hampton Court Palace and the grounds. What an amazing site to visit- if you know anything about Henry VIII and his wives and that interesting period of time, you will LOVE walking around this palace. It is located in a beautiful area of England, and right on the Thames. There is a... More

Hampton court is a very interesting very large historic building,a lot to see and you need plenty of time to make the most of it. Particularly enjoyed the kitchens and there is even a dedicated chocolate kitchen. Henry V111 is depicted in flowers in the garden and the fountain and canal are well worth seeing. The maze adds excitement in... More

Easily access by SouthWest train from London. Plan to spend as much of a full day - say 4 hours - in the castle and gardens. The maze is famous. Gardens fabulous. Good food not expensive in the cafe, pricier dining with service is quieter.

We booked our tickets online as there was a small discount for doing so. Collecting the tickets on the day was very easy but we were not offered an audio guide nor told where we could pick one up. Having said that, an audio guide sometimes isn't the best experience. It might have been better to have had more information... More

I had wanted to visit for a long while so as we had a weekend off work I made the suggestion that we visit. I must admit we both thoroughly enjoyed it, we arrived around 12.15pm and left about an hour before closing. There was so much to see and do, the cafe was nice enough and as the weather... More

Cited in a guide book as one of the three top gardens easily accessible from London, as a garden attraction I would recommend both Kew Gardens and Sissinghurst Castle Garden well ahead of Hampton Court,but of course Hampton offers the attraction of a historical palace experience which would appeal to the history buffs, but not necessarily to garden lovers who...
