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.

Spent the day at Hampton Court in the sunshine with my daughter who seems to have got the history bug. She loved it from the palace to the gardens.We were there for 4 hours in order to see everything. This is my second visit,the first time with my wife in the summer2016 and I will be visiting again.

I'm a big fan of all things British royal history, so I definitely recommend a visit to Hampton Court Palace. There are different tours on throughout the year - we took a tour of the gardens while we were there, and saw the Great Vine! This is a very different experience to the more 'modern' British palaces and castles, so... More

This is a huge place spanning centuries of history. Interesting and well thought out. We bought year passes so can dip in and out. Lots to see you could easily spend a day. All in all a great insight into history

We had a great day out. King Henry's kitchen was a definite highlight. It was amazing to see and discover the scale on which it operated. It was a fascinating insight into the past. The various state rooms were interesting to wonder through. The free audio tour was really interesting and helped to enhance our visit. As it was January... More

Located in East Molesley, Hampton Court Palace can be easily visited by train from London or as part of a day-tour. It was built by Cardinal Thomas Wolsey in 1514 and became the King Henry VIII's favourite royal residence. This remarkable historic palace is England’s largest and grandest Tudor structure. Highlights include Henry VIII’s State Apartments, the Tudor Kitchens and... More
