With its 500 years of royal history Hampton Court Palace
has something to offer everyone. Set in sixty acres of world famous gardens
the Palace is a living tapestry of history from Henry VIII to George II. From
the elegance of the recently restored eighteenth century Privy Garden to the
domestic reality of the Tudor Kitchens visitors are taken back through the
centuries to experience the Palace as it was when royalty was in residence.
Costumed guides and audio tours provide inside information on the life in the royal households and free family trails encourage a closer look at the Palace, with the chance of a prize at the end. In the summer months horse-drawn carriages offer a sedate trip around the stunning gardens.
