Full description

Hop on the train from London's Waterloo station and travel to Hampton Court Palace. After a short 32-minute ride to Hampton Court station, use your ticket for entrance to a place that is actually 2 palaces. It is a magnificent Tudor palace, developed by Cardinal Wolsey and later Henry VIII, standing next to a Baroque palace that was built by William III and Mary II.  By the time of his death in 1547 Henry VIII had over 60 houses, but in the latter part of his reign none were more important to him than Hampton Court Palace. Visit the king’s apartments as one of his courtiers, wearing a Tudor cloak and sneaking down to the vast kitchens where banquets were prepared for as many as 1,000 guests. The splendid apartments of William and Mary in the Baroque Palace date from the late 17th century when they ruled jointly. From the apartments there are spectacular views of the gardens. You can explore the 60 acres of beautiful palace gardens that run down to the River Thames. You’ll see sparkling fountains and glorious seasonal displays of hundreds of thousands of flowering bulbs.

There are no words to describe the massiveness of this castle and the gardens. Photographs simply can’t lend much help to scale either. The tour was fascinating, the staff amazing, and the grounds impeccable. So rich with history. An absolute MUST SEE! I will add I was not impressed that Get Your Guide sold tickets on a day Hampton Court wasn’t open. Lesson learned for me, purchase direct from the provider.

Wow, the buildings; architecture inside and out, the deco, the gardens, the cafes and play areas. The aw if treading on the same ground that Henry VIII once stood! The whole place is steeped in history. Fabulous day out for all ages. Fun, educational but most of all fabulously well presented. Absolutely loved it.

We travelled from London to Hampton Court Palace. This itself was a nice, relaxed journey. The palace and gardens are splendidly kept, which produces an overwhelming feeling that everyone involved is very proud and all work hard to go that extra bit. It’s clear and easy to see the love that’s lavished over each attraction. We will return again in the future. Thanks
