Hampton Court Palace was originally built for Cardinal Thomas Wolsey, a favorite of King Henry VIII. In 1529, Wolsey fell out of royal favor and the king took possession of the palace, launching a massive rebuilding project intended to rival Versailles. A rare example of both Tudor and Baroque building styles, the site is one of only two remaining palaces once owned by Henry VIII. Learn more about the palace’s history at the information center. Lose yourself inside the celebrated maze, designed to confuse and intrigue visitors with numerous twists, turns, and dead ends. Also on the grounds are manicured gardens, historic tennis courts, and a huge grapevine, allegedly the largest in the world.

Got pre-booked tickets for the ice rink. Supposed to have a reduced capacity to aid social distancing - was fuller than this time last year. We actively choose to go before the schools were out but... more »
Visited the palace and gardens aa part of our ticket to Fyre Festival today and was absolutely delighted. The festival added to the old English charm of the palace and gardens. Covid19 restrictions.... more »
Had a wonderful day with my parents and coffee. Deceptively large for walking around in but lift access. Tour guides are exceptional and answered questions for us on the palace. The gardens are so vibrant and loved visiting here. I recommend here for a place to bring visiting friends. Hyde Park being so close perfect for a picnic on a good day after.
We really enjoyed it. Staff were very helpful. It's a good idea to buy the souvenir guide. I was amazed at what I saw. I sat in the Chapel Gardens just wondering at all the people who once may have lived here. A big thank you to all the people who help to maintain and run The Palace and its gardens and help the public to enjoy their visit. My son is in an electric wheelchair so we weren't able to access some areas.... that's to be expected. But the fact that most of the building is accessible.... Very unexpected... That deserves a massive thank you. Will come again.
