Great pass, we were able to spend as much time as we wanted in each place.Reviewed by: Barb, July 2012
Only had time for the tower and Kensington, both excellent.Reviewed by: Amorita T, Australia, June 2012
This pass was very good in time saving and most of time cheaper .everyone has to see these places.Reviewed by: Terry J, June 2012
Hampton Court was one of the most interesting things we saw on the trip.Reviewed by: Corrine P, USA, January 2009
To do the Tower of London right, you need to give yourself at least three to four hours of walking around time, which doesn't include shopping. A bit warm, surprisingly, in the castle buildings. Lots of climbing up narrow stairways. Be careful! Great event.
Hampton Court is for lovers of the Tudor era. The gardens require an extra hour or so to enjoy. I did not get a chance to see the maze-it was getting dark, so I rushed through the back garden. Extraordinary grounds. Visit the garden gift shop too and especially the Tudor Kitchen gift shop. Wow, what a great place.
Not enough time in one day to see all three-Kensington Palace will have to be another day. The ticket is good for one year from purchase. When you buy this event, you buy all three ticket entrances. You have to find your own way to each. No hotel pickups. There is ice skating at the Tower of London in winter holiday season. That was cool! And also an ice skating rink at Hampton Court too, along with a merry-go-round for kids. Festival-like atmosphere! Should allow 3-4 hours for each of the sites.
Saved us heaps of time queuing. Well worth seeing. Hampton Court was like stepping back in time, but all were so interesting in their own way. A must do.Reviewed by: Janet P, Australia, November 2008
Great value for the dollar. All three 'attractions' are well worth seeing, and having the ability to stay as long as we wanted made this a great choice. Plan on staying longer than suggested; we found we stayed at least an hour longer at each location.Reviewed by: Richard W, Canada, September 2008
This is a great bargain, which gives you the advantage of going to the front of the line and a visit to all three of these attractions. The Tower of London was very entertaining and the exhibits were really interesting and full of history. Hampton Court was fantastic! Henry VIII really knew how to live, but of course what Monarch doesn't? Admittedly, he had his foibles! Out of the three Kensington Palace was the least interesting, but worth a visit as it should be seen if you are going to London.Reviewed by: W. Michael M, USA, August 2013
Very good, it is always worth having your tours booked, we saw Kensington palace and Tower of London, but unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances we missed Hampton court, but still worth doing this.Reviewed by: Neville K, June 2013
The royal Palace pass was a great way to visit, on your own time and not feeling rushed. Hampton court was beautiful and worth seeing. Pretty disappointed in the Tower of London though. From what I heard, you were able to see much more than they allow you to see now, for example the prison room where Gilford Dudley was held before he was executed.Reviewed by: Darlene V, June 2013
