Hampton Court Palace


Visit Hampton Court Palace and marvel at the two distinct and contrasting Tudor and Baroque architectural styles and soak up the atmosphere in 60 acres of stunning gardens.

Extended and developed by Henry VIII, the present day elegance and romance of the palace owes much to the Christopher Wren designed baroque buildings commissioned by William and Mary at the end of the 17th Century.
At the palace you are able to step back in time and relive some of the extraordinary moments in the life of Henry VIII and the Glorious Georgians. Try on a courtier gown and explore the majestic environment where kings have entertained, celebrated and mourned. Marvel at the grandeur of the magnificent Great Hall and Great Watching Chamber, see the stunning vaulted ceiling of the Chapel Royal and explore the enormous kitchens, the most extensive surviving 16th Century kitchens in Europe today.
The palace is surrounded by formal gardens and sits in 60 acres of parkland gardens, including the 18th Century Privy Gardenand world famous maze.
