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!.

This worked well with the morning bike ride. I saw quite a lot of the Palace but not everything. Very enjoyable.

I love Henry VIII history so this tour was at the top of my list! There really was no line when we went in the afternoon, so that part was unnecessary. I am amazed how open the house and grounds are. In America, everything would be behind a rope or glass. In the UK, you get much closer to the real thing. This house just keeps on going...as it kept on growing through history. The tour is designed to emphasize the history behind that fact. By all means, take some time to enjoy the park. After days of touring, it was a beautiful spot to just sit and enjoy.

It was an enjoyable experience - to try to imagine the life in the palace and almost get lost in the Maze!
