Hampton Court
Overview

You have been cordially invited to a party at the Hampton Court Palace. Lucky you! Henry VIII has personally invited you and your family, so this party takes place in the 16th century. Do you know all the royal etiquette that will be expected of you? Don’t worry, this tour will plunge you back in time to experience life as a royal

There are many castles in the United Kingdom, but we think this one is the most kid-friendly of them all. 

This palace was built in Tudor times and was the favorite of the rich and arrogant King Henry VIII. And that’s saying something, because he had 64 other palaces! He designed it with his second wife Anne Boleyn, and it was the most magnificent palace of them all, with 1000 rooms, a chapel, one of the largest dining halls in Europe, tennis courts, and splendid gardens.  

Start the day by experiencing the sights, sounds, and even smells of the vast kitchens, which were needed to feed 400 people twice a day. What did they eat? How did they cook it? What was life as a servant like?   

Follow the Tudor route through to the majestic dining hall and see just how the courtiers would have eaten. Learn all about the Tudor table manners and discover how the room was used not only for eating, but also for huge royal parties, and even as the spot for William Shakespeare to premiere his plays.  

You will not want to miss the Haunted Corridor, where you will learn the story of Henry VIII and his six wives. Learn all the dos and don’ts of court etiquette and find out exactly what happened if you misbehaved! 

Them jump forward in time to the 17th century and visit the grandiose State Rooms of William III and Mary II. Discover how you had to dress to visit the Royal family, and just how you needed to behave in the presence of the monarchs. Behold the royal dining room, bedchamber, study, and even the commode! 

Depending on the day and time, there may even be actors roaming around the castle in costume, to really show what it would have been like in that very spot centuries ago!

Life at the Palace was not simply the court and food, though. Discover the leisure activities of the time. You’ll learn about sports, entertainment, and how the royals relaxed outside the palace walls.  

The grounds are one of the real gems of the palace, and a place to run and let off some steam.  There are formal gardens, as well as parklands, and in the summer there are even horse-drawn carriage rides. And don’t forget to challenge yourselves with the oldest puzzle maze in the UK! Can you solve it, or will the hedges get the best of you?)

Not to be missed for any little princes and princesses is the Magic Garden! Open from April to November, this award-winning secure playground with dragons, castles, hideaways, and an ice cream parlor is the perfect storybook ending to your royal day!

We just have one more question for you: are you ready to party like a royal?

FAQ

Can we travel by private van instead of by train?

Yes. We recommend taking the train to avoid traffic jams along the way (and because we just think it’s fun!), but we can provide you with a private van and chauffeur if you like. And if you combine this tour with a visit of another location, transportation will be done by private van. Just send a message here to get a quote.

Can we stay longer by ourselves after the tour is over?

Absolutely! Your return tickets to London are valid the whole day, so there’s no rush. We highly suggest having your lunch nearby while you bask in the regal splendor before returning to London. And if you are with young kids, don’t leave before visiting the amazing Magic Garden after your visit is over (open from April to November).

Can we combine this tour with any other locations?

For sure, our team of superheroes would be happy to combine this activity with a visit to Windsor Palace or Stonehenge. Just send us a message here and we’ll make it happen! 

Are the Magic Gardens open year-round?

Unfortunately, the Magic Gardens are only open April through October bt the maze is open year-round, and is always a big hit! 

Is this tour suitable for all ages?

Yep! Our guides are amazing storytellers and can adapt their speech to every age. There is something at Hampton Court Palace to pique everyone’s interest!
