Explore the grand State Apartments and glorious gardens of England's largest Tudor Palace and former residence of England's most infamous king, Henry VIII, and his many wives. Home to the Kings and Queens of Britain since the time of Henry VIII, Hampton Court Palace is one of the most famous visitor attractions in the country. Perhaps best-known as a Tudor Palace with its magnificent buildings, and 60 acre world-famous riverside gardens.
See The Great Hall
Sitting at the heart of the Tudor Palace, the Great Hall towers over the surrounding buildings. Commission by King Henry VII, the grandeur and size of the Great Hall remains impressive even today.
Discover the Chapel Royal
The Chapel Royal is a grand example of Tudor opulence at Hampton Court. Installed by Henry VIII during the 1500s, the Chapel's vaulted ceiling is vibrantly colourful, rich and layered with history. In 1710 the interior of the chapel was remodelled by Sir Christoper Wren at the request of Queen Anne.
Visit The Magic Garden
Explore The Magic Garden, which provides a unique way for families to discover the history of Hampton Court Palace. Each section of the garden represents either myths, legends, stories or even real objects that can be found at Hampton Court. Once you have ticked everything off in the garden, it's the perfect opportunity to discover those real objects in and around the palace.
Escape The Maze
Enter the UK's oldest hedge maze. Commissioned by William III in 1700, it is a third of an acre in size with many twists and turns, and dead ends. It takes visitors an average of 20 minutes to reach the centre.
