Circle or District lines to Embankment. Bakerloo to Waterloo. South West Trains to Hampton Court.

I hope you're not thinking of doing the Tower and HCP in one day as it's not really possible....well it is, but you would end up spending hardly any time at either

Thank you for the information. No, we are not trying to see Hampton Court and the Tower of London in the same day. We are staying in a hotel near the Tower of London. Thanks again.

You could probably take a scenic boat ride from Tower pier to near Waterloo, and walk to the station. See Thames Clippers or www.tfl.gov.uk

You may end up on the north bank, but you would simply walk across a bridge (Waterloo or Hungerford) to the South Bank, and Waterloo station is a few hundred yards further.

Be aware the boat trip is epic. 3-4 hours long.

I think peterscot was only recommending the boat trip for the ToL-Waterloo leg, not all the way to Hampton Court Palace. I've never been able to figure a way to fit in the boat trip all the way to HCP and still have time to see it.

Don't take the boat trip all the way to Hampton Court or you will lose the will to live.

Don't know how Henry pulled it off.

Yes, I was only suggesting the lovely 15 minute trip past some of London's best landmarks, not the 15 miles to Hampton Court.....

At least Henry didn't have to sort of 2-4-1 deals and Oyster cards.

Maybe that's what sent King George round the bend.
