Visiting by underground/train is very easy and walking to the palace reminded me of the heady days of London 2012, Bradley Wiggins making history and sitting on his throne! Taking in the vista of the palace is a sight to behold. The palace follows the...More

Easy access by train, less than two minute walk from Hampton Court train station. Impossible to get lost as you can see the palace across the river from the station. My wife and I spent the day here. The kitchens are amazing and the clever...More

As a Tudor fan (particularly Elizabeth I), I had read about this place for years before I actually went. Finally went on 10 April 2015. It was probably one of my favourite days the entire semester I studied abroad. I went early and came late...More

If you are a history fan then you will love Hampton Court palace. Be sure to use the headsets provided free of charge which add to the information overload. Unfortunately after you've gone through all the Tudor sections everything after pales in comparison...and because you're...More

Peter R above has the correct answer. As there was a rail strike, we caught a bus from Kingston but usually a train to Hampton Court Station is the best bet. On a good day and if you are reasonably fit, a riverside walk from... More
