Hampton Court Palace and Gardens Surrey west London

Hampton Court

Nestled beside the River Thames, Hampton Court Palace was once a home of Henry 8th.

Explore the magnificent Tudor Kitchens, the awe-inspiring Great Hall and a Gallery said to be haunted by Henry’s fifth wife. 

Visit the Chapel Royal, stroll around the main courtyards, cobbled stone Base Court, Clock Court with its amazing astronomical timepiece and Fountain Court, partly designed by Sir Christopher Wren.

From here you discover the baroque palace started for William III and Mary II and continued by the Georgian Hanoverians. Sweeping grand stairs adorned with magnificent painted ceilings flow into the grandeur of the richly decorated State Apartments.

Art abounds at Hampton Court including The Cumberland Gallery, Mantegna’s Triumph of Caesar and the Beauties Collection.

Wander around the formal gardens, admire the spectacular fountains, tackle the UK’s oldest surviving hedge maze and see the world’s largest grapevine, planted by Capability Brown.

Hampton Court has 3 cafés and a restaurant for welcome refreshments.
