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.

This is a great and frequently overlooked site.

Good check in at the ticket office.
Henry VIII living quarters are not there anymore so it was very disappointing.
Rest of the Palace was good.

Confusing where to go for admission. Didn't know you went where the tickets were Thought the compputer printout was our ticket. Walked all the way to the entrance and then all the way back. I thought there would be more living quarters of Henry VIII. The grounds were beautiful.

Okay experience, but skip the line offer was actually not necessary as there was no queue.

I loved seeing Hampton Court Palace, however, felt the tour offered nothing I could have gained by visiting it alone. I had to join the cue to get in and then used an audio tour guide.

Very pleased with the Palace. It really is a very interesting place and there is lots to see. The only thing that took the edge off was that by going to the pre-paid line we missed out on the sound guide which was included in the price! We missed the queue but were so rushed we didn't see that guides were available.

Didn't make any difference regarding queueing. No one told us we still had to queue with paper voucher to get tickets anyhow. We enjoyed the visit nevertheless.

No benefit from having front of the line ticket. The clerk was not even at the desk. Day trippers got served before we did. No information given as to the best way to tour Hampton Court. Disappointing

When we went, there were no lines but if there were, I'm sure this would have been a help.

Was not very happy with the speed of ticket check at the entrance. I was made to wait 4 at least 10mins. Considering this was supposed to be a "Skip the line" ticket.Might as well queue up and pay the normal amount.

I was not able to get my London Pass to use for transportation to hampton Court Palace. Consequently, this was a waste of money.
