I have visited here so many times and it never disappoints. I have been to winter and summer events and all are second to none. I especially love the summer months sitting in the free deckchairs watching the world go by in a chilled and calming atmosphere.

Make sure you get the train on time to get there and leave. Many stairs, we did at least 10K steps. They have a cafe at the end of the tour...perfect tea and cakes. Many pictures attached. Its a must.

Great , interesting and very enjoyable , we went in February and there was enough inside to keep you busy without venturing out into the gardens and the cold.

We really enjoyed our visit to Hampton Court Palace. We were welcomed by Tudor dancing, and then went into the kitchens where art historians are dressed in tudor costumes and are extremely knowledgeable about everything in the palace. We also enjoyed the gardens and maze.

This is such an amazing place to visit and should be on your top list of places to see. I can highly recommend the HRP Membership option on sale here. Saving on entrance tickets, shops and cafes. We spent over 3 hours here and saw about half of the palace and did not manage to see the gardens so will... More

Really enjoyed our trip to Hampton Court Palace. I particularly liked the fact that it wasn't too big as to feel overwhelming but there was still plenty to do to fill a leisurely day. The Henry VIII connection is well known and fascinating - it was originally remodelled for one of his favourites Cardinal Wolsey and then seized from him.... More

Went in the school holiday, costumed characters create a scenario to educate visitors on Henry Vlll's reign with entertainment and class acting, interaction and improvisation. Children were enthralled. The Palace is presented beautifully. My daughter actually fell into the fountain pool and was soaked. Being a cold, windy day a member of staff Helen, enquired and when my daughter told... More

We had a wonderful day at the palace and gardens with chilly but lovely, sunny weather. It was beyond our expectations. I would highly recommend to everyone.
