Visited on a day of Train strikes, that made getting there very hard.
A 45 minute bus ride from the nearest tube station.
However the Palace was amazing and too much to fit into one day.
A return visit is indicated. We will choose one...More
There are several grand palaces in the world; this is one of them. Hampton Court was built by English Kings over the centuries and housed the infamous Henry the 8th. The palace and surrounding gardens well maintained. The high, thick hedge maze confounds young and...More
We visited a Monday morning in November, and had the castle almost completely to ourselves. That enhanced the experience even more. The tours are well arranged and very interesting. Children and adults can both enjoy the tours, as you can choose different programs on the...More
OMG book your tickets right away. The palace is beautiful with so much history and so many amazing stories, some of which are brought to life by actors, in fact there is loads of interactive learning tools throughout the tour. Totally gorgeous experience in every...More
Lovely place to visit. The gardens are nice with swans wandering about. Spent about 3 hours seeing everything. Has a few gifts shops which has nice bits but are a bit expensive. We went into the cafe but wasn't allowed a take away cup as...More
Tickets prices are slightly cheaper if purchased online. If not, it is GBP22.70 at the gate. Also, there used to be a combined ticket that you can get with train tickets from Waterloo. But it has been discontinued, so definitely purchase online if you can...More
Hampton Court Palace is a wonderful place that must not be missed. Arrange to get there when they open at 10am; you will need plenty of time to enjoy a brilliant day.
The place is famous as a Tudor palace with its association with Henry...More
Went to the palace yesterday for a family day out. Was a little bit expensive to get in, but you won’t be going there every week. So a nice treat.
Amazing place. The palace itself is amazing, the size of it is tremendous. And when...More
Great day out, allow minimum 3hours to see around the Palace, more if you want to explore the gardens and maze. To get a feel how Henry VIII lived their, the cellar, the kitchen and courtyard. The great hall was amazing, especially with people dressed...More

You are able to take packed lunches onto the grounds, but there is no eating the the palace itself. Eating can only be done in designated areas and you should follow up on the hrp (historic royal palaces) website to see... More

Ignore the answer above about multiple tubes and buses - completely crazy and no need whatsoever! As others have said, it is simplicity itself. If you are staying in central London just get yourself to the huge mainline station of Waterloo (near the Houses of Parliament/Westminster Bridge/London Eye), look up at the departure boards and get the next train to Hampton Court. Normally two an hour, takes about 40 minutes. No changes. Hampton Court is the end of the line so you can’t miss it, and will be named as the destination on the departure boards at Waterloo, so very easy. Then a very short walk over Hampton Court Bridge to the Palace, providing a lovely first view. Beware if you are thinking of coming this week - it’s the Flower Show and will be a very different experience than normal - in my view way too busy at the Palace and on the trains. Leave till after this weekend if you can!
