Discover the lavish spaces where the notorious Henry VIII once resided, indulged and—occasionally—terrorized his court, particularly his six unfortunate wives. Make your own way to Hampton Court Palace and use your pre-booked admission ticket to enter.

Once inside, explore independently or join a guided tour to learn about the extravagant palace that evolved from humble beginnings as a grange in the 13th century. Acquired by capricious King Henry in the 1520s, the estate grew in size and grandeur, replete with fine tapestries, furnishings, and art. Along the tour, see the Great Hall, the State Apartments, and the enormous royal kitchens. Built to feed the indulgent king and his court of 600 people twice daily, these kitchens were the largest of Tutor England.

Families may enjoy the Family Trails tour, a kid-focused palace walk, and a visit to Hampton’s Family Room, a designated space for children to rest and play.

After your tour through the magnificent palace interior, head outside to the surrounding gardens. Wander through the unique Privy Gardens, the Great Vine and the Hampton Court Maze—touted as the most famous maze in the world. Fortunately, with no tangental paths to stump you, you won’t get lost within it!

    It was fabulous. David did a fabulous job educating us on the history, art and culture Hampton Court. The drive was lovely and the trip was delightful as David continued to educate us about the areas we traversed. A bonus was getting to see Eton College.

    We really enjoyed Hampton Court Palace. It was lower season, so a great experience because it wasn't crowded. We appreciated having all travel information on our voucher as to how to get out there We opted to take the train which was easy and only 30 min. Again thanks to the specific info.

    We used our Oyster card to take the tube to Wimbledon then again to board a national railway train to Hampton Court. After about a 3' walk we entered the grounds. We just should our ticket which we had printed off at home and went right in.

    Marvelous Place to Visit!

    Wow! What a marvelous place to visit! So much history here. We happened to be here on the hottest day on record in London. It was so hot! The palace was almost deserted, giving us plenty of photo opportunities with no people in the pictures. The brochure is laid out well, so you can see what interests you by time periods. There were employees in every room to answer your questions. Would definitely go back to spend more time! Well worth the ticket price.

    No such thing as priority entry to Hampton Court Palace

    There is no such thing as priority entry to Hampton Court Palace, so don't be conned into paying more than the standard ticket price. Buy directly from Historic Royal Palaces for family discounts too.
