Newest Review: ... carved high ceilings, rich tapestries and many animal horns on the walls, this would be where banquets and balls would have been held. In fact, the lower ranked staff would have eaten here when the room wasn't required for other purposes as Henry's retinue contained up to 600 staff (eat your heart out Justin Bieber). Beyond here was the Watching Chamber where Henry's guards controlled access ... more

As a member of the Historical Royal Palaces admission to Hampton Court Palace is free. If you are not a member you can expect to pay £17.60 for an adult, £8.80 for a child and £14.85 for students and OAPs. The Palace is open every day from 10am until 6pm. The Palace is five minutes walk from the mainline rail station of the same name, which can be accessed from London Waterloo. Trains run every thirty minutes. As you arrive the ticket office and gift shop is on your left. You can also visit the Tiltyard Café without paying admission. There has been a property on this spot since the 14th century, but the earliest parts of the palace we see today were ... Read the complete review

When my mam came down to London to stay with me for a few days, I asked her to choose some places she'd like to visit. Top of her list was Hampton Court Palace. Years ago, my dad, who used to be a teacher, visited several times with parties of schoolchildren, but my mam had never had the chance to go - until now. I had visited before - back in 2009 - but was happy to go again. Hampton Court is perhaps best known for its connection with Henry VIII. The Palace was the main country residence of Cardinal Wolsey, and on his fall it was taken over by the King. However, it also has strong associations with the age of William and Mary, and in fact it has a rich and ... Read the complete review

Hampton Court Palace has to be my favourite place to visit; we have been there countless times. Driving there is simple, exit the M25 at J13 towards Heathrow T4 and follow the signs to Hampton court. The parking is very reasonable, I think we paid about £6.00 for the day and is right in the palace grounds. The train is also a simple by taking south west trains from Vauxhall rail station to Hampton Court Rail station, the palace is just over the bridge, and you can't miss the magnificent red Tudor palace across the river. You buy your tickets just after the gates before you reach the palace; although you can purchase them online at a reduced ... Read the complete review

Hampton Court Palace is one of those places that I had been meaning to visit for years but the opportunity had just never arisen. However having visitors over the late summer Bank Holiday weekend (yes, it really was supposed to be summer!) made me hunt for somewhere to visit and I remembered Hampton Court. ===Getting There=== I had always glanced at the atlas and seen Hampton Court within the M25 and assumed it would be difficult to get to. In fact it is remarkably easy to find, we followed the M25 around to the M3 and then followed the brown and white tourist signs. The only problem we had was trying to work out where to park, the signs seemed ... Read the complete review

I love history, and since junior school one of my favourite historical characters has to be Henry the VIII. He's always seemed an enthralling (if slight mad) character, and one who massively changed the course of English history. So I was quite excited to be able to visit the London home of this most extraordinary of Kings - the famous Hampton Court Palace. A Little History The layout of Hampton Court Palace can be divided into two primary styles. The older part of the palace is the Tudor section, completed in 1525 for the then archbishop of Canterbury Thomas Wolsey. Wolsey was a great favourite of King Henry the VIII, explaining how he was able to ... Read the complete review
