See where King Henry VIII wooed his many wives with fast-track entry to Hampton Court Palace. Even better, by purchasing your ticket ahead of time you'll jump the queue. Don't waste time waiting in lines on vacation!

Flamboyant Henry VIII is most associated with this majestic palace, which he extended and developed after acquiring it in the 1520s. The palace's many royal occupants have ensured the palace has fabulous furnishings, tapestries and paintings. It is set in beautiful formal gardens, which include the famous maze and the Great Vine.

Hampton Court has a designated Family Room, where parents and young children are invited to take a rest from the bustle of the palace. The play equipment is suitable for children aged under five. Family Trails guiding children around the palace are available at the Information Center.

The palace is pushchair friendly and a lift is available if you'd like to access the upper floor without using the stairs.

Hampton Court is just half an hour from Central London by direct train and is a great place to spend a relaxing afternoon out of the city!

At least three hours is recommended for your visit to Hampton Court.

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!
