It was very helpful that the sun was out and made the day even better! Skating today, a little crowded, but fun in the winter sunshine. There's a place to have a hot chocolate and something stronger too. Small menu.

We loved visiting Hampton Court Palace, especially after viewing "The Tudors" TV series on Netflix. The cost was $25 pp. We took the train, using our unlimited zone 6 travel pass. They offer serval different types of free tour, including DIY audio. It was a fun day, and I highly recommend going to Hampton Court Palace.

Always wanted to visit and it didn't disappoint when we did. Well organised into different tours with audio info. We did Henrys kitchens, Henry viii apartments plus William and Mary. It was too cold for the gardens but they looked beautiful. Will return in summer I think. It seems expensive when you arrive but you get a lot and is... More

What can I say, the place speaks for itself. Its not cheap to start with but you get so much from visiting it. We took family and our 2 year old son and we parked off site, although moved to the grounds later - parking just down the road was £1.50 per hour and £1.60 at the grounds. We started... More

It is a bit out of the way but easy to get to. You have an audio guide and pamphlet on self guided tours throughout the palace. You are free to walk the grounds as well. This is at your own pace (fast if you like, or spending lots of time to look and read). The train station is a... More

I had not been for some years and was greatly impressed by how everything had improved so much in terms of the visitor experience. It is not cheap at £21 for an adult but you do receive an awful lot for the ticket price. Not only are the grounds magnificent but a number of exhibitions, the vast palace itself and... More

We went here on Sunday with our 5 year old and 6 year old. It was utter chaos from start to finish. The queue to get skates is horrendous and everyone is packed in like sleep with people walking around with no shoes on next to people with skates on so how we escaped injury I'm not sure. We then...

Lovely day out. Grounds were wonderful, much of the original portions of several rooms were still intact, rose garden lovely. Actors in several parts of the palace added to the enjoyment. Having been in a number of castles and palaces this was nice - not as nice as some others, but very enjoyable. I would go again.
