Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Best Royal Palaces Pass: Kensington Palace, Hampton Court and Tower of London. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Didn't have to queue with this pass and all venues were terrific.
Personal favourite was the Tower of London. Join a tour with a Beefeater and you'll learn some history and have a laugh at the same time.
Easy to spend half a day or more in the Tower and to roam around Kensington and Hampton Court Palaces made us feel like we were allowed into a very special and private part of England.
Getting your passes before you arrive at the palaces saves you time and hassle. Tip: go to the Tower of London early in the day before the crowds come.
Were only able to visit two of the three castles - just not enough time on our calendar. Hampton Court was beautiful and quite interesting. Tower of London was very intriguing. Take a full three days and visit each castle for an entire day. This pass makes it possible.
We loved all of these attractions and would highly recommend this package. We were able to do this over 9 days and was not in a pinch to do it all in one day.
I had booked this incorrectly and Viator came through with no hassles and helped me easily and quickly. I am grateful to have booked it through Viator and from now on will continue to book future tours with Viator. So easy and prices are very reasonable. Just book early and correctly! The tour itself was great - glad we could take our time and not be in a rush. Easy to book and easier to get in to the Palaces and Tower of London.
This was well worth the cost! We were able to see Hampton Court and the Tower of London. THe card was great in getting us past all the long lines. The Queens Jewels in the Jewel Tower were a sight not to be missed. Hampton Court was beautiful as well and the gardens were gorgeous.
Really enjoyed all! I recommend doing one tour a day to get the most of your time spent there.
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.
I have trouble walking for long periods. As a result, I only saw a small portion of the Tower. My son and nieces walked the rest and climbed the stairs. Good for them!
