It's one of my favourite places. Busy, yes (usually). But I love coming here early in the day when there aren't many people around. You get to immerse yourself in history. It's a truly beautiful place - inside and out (the gardens are gorgeous, a...More

We travelled from Westminster Bridge by boat. The commentary was very good and amusing. Loads to see as you sail up the Thames. Lots of expensive flats! We booked our tickets to the Palace online so got straight into the palace. Unfortunately it was 35...More

This place is almost unbelievable! The castle is magnificent with more space than seems possible. The art work throughout and on all the ceilings is gorgeous! I am not much of a souvenir purchaser but I did buy some cool items at this gift shop...More

Walking into Hampton Court Palace was like I was apart of history! So much to see from beef being cooked on a large spit in King Henry the Vlll day to seeing his crown! High Tea was average, there were not enough of severing staff...More

Amazing display of historic British royal history. Well worth an excursion away from London. Henry VIII and William III are noteworthy contributors,,

A beautiful and enormous castle, with beautiful and exciting part of the past. It was a real pleasure to visit such a beautiful place and part of history.

Hampton Court Palace is a great place to visit with kids over 10. You get to see the palace of Henry VIII and all the rooms. The audio guide is a little confusing but is full of facts. Although it is a great place, the...More

Thanks for your review, can I ask what time the concert ended? I need to plan pick up but can't see a rough finish time at all. Many thanks AB

I'm afraid I don't know. I would say 10.30 due to local residents. There are lots of good pubs around Hampton Court. You could always get the taxi to pick you up from the pub for 11.30 and have a drink after the show. Have... More
Hi, How do you get tickets for the Power Play at Hampton Court. There does not seem to be a ticketing option on their website? Thanks

It's included in the admission price. I had thought that was the case, and so just checked the website page on the Power Play for you - and it does say that but in smaller print, so easy to miss! Looks like some evening... More

Hi there. visiting Hampton Court tomorow. We really need to get a disabled space right outside. i know it doesn't open until 10am, but being school holidays we will arrive as early as needed as it's likely to be busy. How early do you think we should try to get there to try to guarantee a parking spot? thankyou!

When I was there, there was not many visitors while the parking lot was spacious enough. I think it's a good idea to come an hour before open so you can choose the strategic parking lot.
