So much easier when you can skip the line! Just remember to stop at the ticket office to exchange your Viator paper tickets for Hampton Court tickets. DO NOT miss the re-enactment with Thomas Culpepper and the other actors. I believe this happens by the fountain in the main court area around 12noon. Ask to get the exact time. The whole court experience really came alive for us with this.
Taking the train out .Hampton Court is interesting. There's still a walk to it after you get off the train - maybe 3/4 mile - and the trains don't run too often, so check the schedule so you don't have a long wait. I can recommend the hot chocolate from the vendor at the train station it was freezing cold!.
