Home to Henry VIII, majestic Hampton Court Palace sits further along the River Thames in south-west London.
Wander through the palace learning about the wives and children of Henry VIII, visit the Great Hall, Great Watching Chamber and the Chapel Royal. Visitors can also enjoy the State Apartments of William III and Mary II. For those brave enough, explore the Haunted Gallery, said to be haunted by Henry VIII’s fifth wife who was executed at the Tower of London.
A visit to Hampton Court Palace isn’t complete without wandering through the beautiful gardens. Rich in Royal history, explore The Great Fountain Garden, The Pond Gardens, the Kitchen Garden, and many more. Children will enjoy the interactive Magic Garden and adults will enjoy visiting The Great Vine from which the palace produces wine annually. With 60 acres of formal gardens and 750 acres of historic parkland, there’s plenty to see and do for all.
