I was most interested in Hampton Court, and it did not disappoint! This pass was so easy to get, just show your voucher at the first one you go to, and away you go through the line. The Tower of London Yeoman Warders are great, so I would make sure to check into their tour times free and join in on one. We just happened to arrive as one was starting, so joined in just into the gate.
Augusta was charming and knowledgeable on the War Room tour. We were very pleased with our tour. Thank you for insuring that our tour left exactly on time. I was also very impressed how she stayed with us thru the entry to the museum to be sure there headsets worked well too
We used the Tower of London part of this tour. It was very good. The Beefeater that guided us was entertaining, knowledgeable and friendly. We will use the rest of the pass next year.
We presented the Viator voucher at the Tower of London with no problems. The Tower itself is fantastic.
Only had time for Tower and Hampton Court Palace. Both are excellent! Public transit practically drop you off at entry to both locations.
Great value and easy to use with a two year expiry! Hampton Court was fantastic and although located out near Wimbledon was a fantastic and easy/ quick trip via the underground. Wimbledon itself was well worth a look around with great shopping. Hampton Court was awesome! The Tower was also fantastic and as a Tudor history fan both visits were a highlight of our trip to London. Unfortunately we ran out of time for Kensington Palace however with a two year expiry it will be on the agenda for our next visit.
Great pass, we were able to spend as much time as we wanted in each place.
Only had time for the tower and Kensington, both excellent.
This pass was very good in time saving and most of time cheaper .everyone has to see these places.
Hampton Court was one of the most interesting things we saw on the trip.
To do the Tower of London right, you need to give yourself at least three to four hours of walking around time, which doesn't include shopping. A bit warm, surprisingly, in the castle buildings. Lots of climbing up narrow stairways. Be careful! Great event.
Hampton Court is for lovers of the Tudor era. The gardens require an extra hour or so to enjoy. I did not get a chance to see the maze-it was getting dark, so I rushed through the back garden. Extraordinary grounds. Visit the garden gift shop too and especially the Tudor Kitchen gift shop. Wow, what a great place.
Not enough time in one day to see all three-Kensington Palace will have to be another day. The ticket is good for one year from purchase. When you buy this event, you buy all three ticket entrances. You have to find your own way to each. No hotel pickups. There is ice skating at the Tower of London in winter holiday season. That was cool! And also an ice skating rink at Hampton Court too, along with a merry-go-round for kids. Festival-like atmosphere! Should allow 3-4 hours for each of the sites.
Saved us heaps of time queuing. Well worth seeing. Hampton Court was like stepping back in time, but all were so interesting in their own way. A must do.
Great value for the dollar. All three 'attractions' are well worth seeing, and having the ability to stay as long as we wanted made this a great choice. Plan on staying longer than suggested; we found we stayed at least an hour longer at each location.
Definitely worth it f you are planning on visiting all 3 attractions.
I loved not having to wait in line, I saved money also with the pass. I will tell my friends who are going to London next year to buy the pass.
Quite good go to the group section to validate your passes we used for Tower of London Kensington palace and Hampton court. Go and see the Crown Jewels early in the morning if you don't want to line up. Great value for money really enjoyed this tour. Trains for Hampton court leave every half hour
Great option if you only are interested in a couple things and would not use the more expensive London Pass.

This is a great bargain, which gives you the advantage of going to the front of the line and a visit to all three of these attractions. The Tower of London was very entertaining and the exhibits were really interesting and full of history. Hampton Court was fantastic! Henry VIII really knew how to live, but of course what Monarch doesn't? Admittedly, he had his foibles! Out of the three Kensington Palace was the least interesting, but worth a visit as it should be seen if you are going to London.
Very good, it is always worth having your tours booked, we saw Kensington palace and Tower of London, but unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances we missed Hampton court, but still worth doing this.
The royal Palace pass was a great way to visit, on your own time and not feeling rushed. Hampton court was beautiful and worth seeing. Pretty disappointed in the Tower of London though. From what I heard, you were able to see much more than they allow you to see now, for example the prison room where Gilford Dudley was held before he was executed.
Great to have the passes ahead. When you arrive at each palace, you go straight to the entrance. Three less lines to stand in. A lot of history in these palaces.
