A beautiful palace in a beautiful setting. You can't beat a walk around Hampton Court and a walk along the river which runs along the side. A riverside walk to Kingston is a nice walk. At the moment the annual ice rink is in place at Hampton Court and skating with the Palace as a back drop can't really be... More

I have wanted to visit Hampton Court Palace for a long time but my expectations were far exceeded! It was so magical as the Ice rink was there and the children absolutely loved it. There was so much to see of this Historic Palace and the Gardens, you could easily spend the day here. Only slight negative was that the... More

This Palace is full of English history, commencing with Cardinal Wolsey back in 1515 and gifted to Henry VIII in 1529 and is one of two surviving Palaces owned by Henry. King William III renovated and expanded the Palace during his reign and the last King to live here was King George II. The Palace itself was very sparsely furnished... More

This is a fantastic piece of jewelled history. This palace has 2 time capsules of history and just so interesting and I felt as though I was back in time. Tickets are £18.00 each, but you can easily spend all day - and more there. We had a fantastic day there - although food was expensive (but nice). What was... More

A first visit to explore Hampton Court today....an excellent time, full of interest from re-enactors with a history of the last few days of Henry VIII to the restaurants that were good value, as were the shops.

We arrived when Hampton Court opened so managed to avoid the crowds. It's a huge place. You need the maps to make sure you see everything, as there are many corridoors, twists and turns. If you are interested in Royal history then this is for you. Gardens are stunning, but we were suprised that the maze is now separate from... More

We visited on a dull January day and we're pleased to find the entry price discounted on line. The audio guide was brilliant. There is just so much to see and the interaction with costumed players is well done. The weather was not conducive to exploring the gardens but from the house they looked stunning. The aids to understanding different... More

Not only is there so much to see here, including the history. The restaurant is very good, and this is such a fantastic place to visit.

I will recommend this as one of three top attractions in London and vicinity. Some rooms could be better organised, especially some which are showing Henry VIII life.
