Gardens are amazing - well worth the visit; very easy way to get tickets.
Hampton Court was great. It's a huge place and there is a lot to see. Easily a full day. A great deal of information on Henry the 8th. Henry made huge impacts on maintaining the English kingdom in terms of rebuilding/refurbishment of the palaces. To get there, take the train from Waterloo train station. The last stop is Hampton court. Buy a return ticket at the same time. They can be used at any time. I think the train was running every 30 minutes.
Hampton Court is beautiful and rich with history. The skip the line pass really wasn't necessary because there wasn't a line this day, but I would imagine during peak travel season it could be quite busy.
Maze was lots of fun and palace and gardens were amazing.
Hampton Court Palace was well worth a look. However there was no queue the day we went.
The Palace was magnificent! The only advantage to using Viator was getting the advance ticket. If there was a long line up to get in this would have been an advantage. Make sure you go to the cloak room to get your free cloak. It does help get you in the mood.
Hampton Court Palace was excellent, although it would have been easier to buy tickets there than to go to the trouble of buying them in advance from Viator. There were no queues on the Saturday we went in July. There is a lot to do at the palace, and the grounds are beautiful. The ticket includes an excellent audio guide. The apartments from Henry's time and more recent monarchs' times are very interesting. The day we went they had a theme of Henry VIII marrying his 6th wife, and we could be guests at various activities throughout the day.
My best advice is to go out of peak season when there are not many people around.
It took about an hour to get there from London by train but I am glad we went. The gardens are very beautiful and it was nice to take a little Tudor tour.
Okay experience, but skip the line offer was actually not necessary as there was no queue.
Not sure you needed the skip the line as it was not that crowded
