September 2018: This is just a beautiful and fun place for a family day out. It can be also a romantic place for a picnic. Kids love Magic Gardens and the Maze. Great cafe but over priced in my opinion. Lots to see inside the Palace and stunning gardens! The membership worth every penny. January 2019: Another little trip to Hampton Court Palace with my boys. Today we went inside Henry VIII apartments. It does worth visiting the rooms, definitely fun way to learn about history. There was a Christmas Ghost Story telling session in one of rooms with cushions on the floor for kids and grown-ups to sit down and listen. But unfortunately my baby started crying just before the beginning and we had to leave. As a member I didn't mind because we live not too far and we can always go back another day. I do think they could had been a bit more understanding with young kids. I'm sure that my baby would have gone quiet once they story telling had started and he's used to the library sessions. Overall we had another lovely time visiting Hampton Court Palace!
Truly lovely. Shows off its history beautifully! Having been twice I can say it's more than a day to look at. Activities that we did last time included wreath making. Visiting the kitchen with George and the crew was exceptional. It made for a fantastic trip the first time and an exceptional start to the Christmas period in the second.
It was a fun day out and a romantic date. It was fun to learn about history and see all the paintings and beautiful gardens. There was a man who read out a scary story by Dickens which was great fun. There were also Carol singers. The Christmas decorations were beautiful, but it is probably better to go in summer as it was very cold in the buildings. I would have liked it if there were more talks or perhaps a guided tour. Also, we could not find the audio guide when we entered and didn't see them until we were leaving so we missed out on that, perhaps it should be more clearly signposted.
Wonderful place to venture out and visit.. lots to do including the maze and magic garden! The palace gardens are lovely as is the palace tour itself! Lovely cafe that sells amazing scones and cream! Great for all the family.. being Xmas time there is also an ice rink!
Really amazing place to learn about King Henry VIII and the Tudor family. As long as the other royal families that stayed later on. Place is pretty big and probably takes around 2 hours for a full trip. The gift shops are really nice and affordable. Parks are really spacious and nice, good for an afternoon picnic. Staff members are really nice and helpful. Kitchen involves live demonstrations and actual historic recipes which involves a large warm fire.
