Get an up-close look at Henry VIII’s royal lifestyle with this priority entrance pass to Hampton Court Palace. Enjoy faster access inside the venue and tours led by costumed guides. View the King's and Queen's State Apartments, Tutor-style kitchens, Hampton Court’s famous garden maze, and more.
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 (approximately 35 minutes by train from London) and avoid regular wait times with priority entrance.
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 tapetries, 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!

We purchased the entry tickets before hand but found it really didn't make a difference even if we had purchased the tickets on-site. The audio guide was good but make sure you block several hours to see everything. We didn't get to see everything and we got there at 1230 and thought we had enough time. The attraction is worth the visit, lots of history to see.
get this tour to avoid long queues.
I loved this tour! It was better than expected. Of course I love history, period. My favorite part was the skit by the actors in the great hall and the kitchens! Just amazing to walk where Henry VIII walked. Since it was cold, we missed a lot of the outdoors areas, but will definitely come back.
Amazing. I can't recommend this enough. Absolutely would go back if I get the chance.
Absolutely incredible, something ticked off my bucket list
Beautiful palace. worth a visit.
Easy access via the train. We enjoyed moving through the rooms at our own speed.
Fantastic tour. Skipped the queues! Caught the impromptu actors - made the trip all the more interesting.
What an amazing place to see. We wondered throughout the palace and gardens and it was very enjoyable.
great place to visit!!
