Covid-19 Update

Due to health and safety regulations, this itinerary may change. See Know before you go for the latest updates.

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. From 19 May to 5 September 2021, explore an exhibition commemorating the 500th anniversary of the Field of Cloth of Gold. The exhibition, Gold and Glory: Henry VIII and the French King, will reveal the characters and stories behind the festivities. See surviving objects and paintings including a never-seen-before 16th century tapestry representing people of color at the European royal courts, providing a window into the largely unknown world of black Tudors.

    It was the most wonderful experience in every way . All the straff without exception were charming and helpful . We specifically came to see the Bacton Altar Cloth and it exceeded all our expectations .The temporary cafe under difficult conditions provided a delicious lunch . All in all a memorable day and well worth the entry fee .

    Hampton Court was impressive. Audio guide helpful but could have been better arranged. Interesting to learn more of life of Henry and his wives. Actors recreating scenes enhanced the experience. Very awkward to get to Palace. Clear directions would have saved time. Trains not running to Hampton Court made things difficult that day.

    It was not well sign posted to the disabled parking and the attendant was a bit vague. Once we were in the palace though we were very pleased and the kitchens were especially fun. Well done to the 2 gentlemen in costume. We were also very grateful to the young lady in the main gist shop for her help in getting the Christmas baubles we wanted.
