    What to Expect
    Discover the lavish spaces where the notorious Henry VIII once resided, indulged and—occasionally—terrorized his court, particularly his six unfortunate wives. Make your own way to Hampton Court Palace and avoid regular wait times with priority entrance.
    Once inside, explore independently or join a guided tour to learn about the extravagant palace that evolved from humble beginnings as a grange in the 13th century. Acquired by capricious King Henry in the 1520s, the estate grew in size and grandeur, replete with fine tapestries, furnishings, and art. Along the tour, see the Great Hall, the State Apartments, and the enormous royal kitchens. Built to feed the indulgent king and his court of 600 people twice daily, these kitchens were the largest of Tutor England.
    Families may enjoy the Family Trails tour, a kid-focused palace walk, and a visit to Hampton’s Family Room, a designated space for children to rest and play.
    After your tour through the magnificent palace interior, head outside to the surrounding gardens. Wander through the unique Privy Gardens, the Great Vine and the Hampton Court Maze—touted as the most famous maze in the world. Fortunately, with no tangental paths to stump you, you won’t get lost within it!
