Your host will hand over your tickets, and then show you to the entrance, leaving you for roughly two hours to explore independently and perhaps grab lunch (own expense).

In the afternoon, your tour continues to Hampton Court Palace in southwest London, approximately one hour away. With two hours to explore at leisure, you’ll learn all about the lives of famous monarchs who’ve lived in the palace like Henry VIII, plus admire the beautiful Tudor architecture and gardens.

Your tour returns to London Victoria by coach, where you’ll arrive in the early evening.

Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

I purchased this tour to see Hampton Court Palace and I was not disappointed! This castle is incredible, huge and impressive. I especially loved the kitchen tour and the folks dressed in Tudor style costumes wandering around. Lunch at the cafe was delicious. While the tour was self-guided, I could have used more time simply to soak up the ambiance. Maybe a longer tour of just Hampton Court.
Kensington Palace was also delightful. More of a modern palace but knowing Princess Diana lived here and William and Kate would soon live here gave it a different feel for me. Our tour guide Sheila was delightful - not too corny, very funny. Good tour!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

An excellent tour. Mel, our guide, was interesting and interested in our experience. Hampton court is awesome and huge,! Kensington is a little boring, but worth the trip. Evan Evans was the assigned company and we were so happy we reschedule a missed tour directly with them in order to see what we missed.
