Very historical, learnt many new aspects about King Henry the Eighth. The entire palace was not open to tourists, and some areas had renovations to preserve it. Still, all-in-all, an excellent choice to see some of the original architecture and tapestries. We enjoyed a fun...More

I set 3 hours for the Palace in the half day that I had before the flight home and was very sorry I did not have more time, especially that coming by bus from Brentford was a nightmare and took longer than I thought. The...More

If you like history, this is the place for you. It was an easy train ride from Central London to Hampton Court Palace. It was not crowded at all. You get to enjoy a short stroll to the Palace and learn about the royal blood...More

The afternoon we spent at Hampton Court was in many ways all too short as there is so much history here to take in, in such a short period of time. Trying to imagine how the kitchens operated under such trying conditions and the number...More

Have been into many Castles and Palaces, this one is great. Not a place you can do justice in just a day. Travelled by train on a two for one deal. Ended up buying an annual pass for the Royal Palaces. The cost if £80...More

There is so much to see and do at Hampton Court. We were there 6 hours and we didn't see everything. We bought our tickets online to save money and parked free in Bushy Park which saved us nearly £10. The audio guides were excellent...More
