Fabulous site, both castle and grounds! One should read up on the way the tour is handled prior to going--there are guides for hire and I recommend using one because the audio lectures are WAY too long and boring. Food is so- so; take your own if you can. Lots of walking!

Parking was a disaster as the car parks were full. There was also no need to print off you voucher as stated on the visitor web site. This would have saved us a great deal of trouble had we known. Otherwise Hampton Court was amazing and well worth a visit

No waiting. Wonderful stroll thru the gardens and Hampton Court. Loved the portraits and furnished room displays. Informative and friendly, helpful staff.

Absolutely loved it! If you are going to go, word of advice : GET THERE EARLY. There's an incredible amount to see. I spent 6 hours there--the gardens were all dead (a couple of crocuses but that's it), missed the kitchens and ditched my audio guide halfway through--still not enough time. If you get there early, they have these red velvet cloaks (and an assortment of long colored vests) to wear. It was fun to feel like I was walking out of time and doubly nice as it kept me extra warm on that cold day. All the wardens are super friendly and knowledgeable. Be sure to chat them up. The audio guide is awesome, particularly the dramatic version in the Henry VIII's apartments. I really like these booklets in most of the rooms discussing each of the paintings, light fixtures and porcelain artifacts. You can sit on thrones, indulge in a scratch and sniff map, see actors flit through the halls (saw the King and the cardinal discuss matters of state on the staircase). I can't express enough how delighted I was that this wasn't just another stuffy museum. If you are worried about it being too far, don't! It was an easy train ride (comfy seats, practically empty). Like I said, you need to make a day of it. Leave Waterloo no later than 9:30am and have an amazing day!

Excellent day which was both informative and interesting with the use of the audio guide. Great value for the cost.
