A huge royal palace with connections to the British Monarchy since Tudor Times. Far too much to see on one trip, so purchased a years membership ! There were a range of gardens and a maze , which is famous. There was a Food Festival going on when we visited which was a delicious way to spend a few hours,... More

Bought tickets to the palace, magic gardens and maze, and was not disappointed. The palace is gorgeous. In the kitchen there was a great fire that gave the whole place an amazing smell, working on imagination, and there were actors dressed in traditional clothes singing and playing out Henry's story. Plenty to see. Lovely gardens. Fun for kids and adults.... More

Just returned from a lovely day at the palace. We were going anyway but then discovered that the BBC food festival was running and included in the entrance fee. The palace is stunning and we were surprised at just how many rooms the public are allowed access to. There were shows taking place in some areas of the palace, although... More

Spent 4 hours - not nearly enough! Did the audio guide tours of Henry's kitchens and Henry's apartments. Picnicked in the gardens (lovely sunny afternoon), and BBC Good Food Festival was on (bonus!). The splendour is absolutely breathtaking, the ceilings amazing, the gardens (and the Great Vine) fabulous. So much to admire everywhere you look, will have to go back... More

We spent a lovely day exploring Hampton Court palace. Some great exhibitions and such an interesting history. The lunch in the privy kitchen was very nice, but a tad pricey. The gardens we're alive with a food festival and it really added to the atmosphere giving a glimpse into how busy and big this palace would have been. The Chapel... More

Wonderful place to visit. Of course a day is not enough but give it your best shot. Don't miss the giant vine, the lovely smaller gardens and of course the clock. To the genius who said in a review on 27 August that the " river " was full of algae - I think you'll find that was a decorative... More

My parents and partner decided to surprise me with a visit to Hampton court palace for my 21st birthday! I have been here before and love exploring the palace especially anything Tudor related. However this time I have a guided tour and I learnt so much more and would really recommend it, this is one of my yearly places to... More

We visited the new magic garden today with our two children aged 3 and 6. They absolutely loved it and it has a good mix of attractions for different age ranges. You wouldn't spend all day in this section but we did this and the maze and we stayed for 3 hours. You can be on a time limit if... More

I cannot understand anyone not being impressed by this wonderful palace and its grounds. We visited this palace on a Monday and did have trouble finding parking, so I would advise anyone to park early in the day before it gets busy. This was our second visit to Hampton Court, but our last one was spoilt by exceedingly bad weather,... More

This is a must for everyone who enjoys history and especially in regards to Henry VIII. It provides a great insight into the running of the Royal household such as the deliveries, kitchen, chapel, etc. that many books do not provide. Use the audio guide which shows photos of where you should be to match the commentary. The gardens are... More
