About the Hampton Court Palace

Hampton Court Palace is a Grade I listed royal palace, famously built by Cardinal Thomas Wolsey, the chief minister of King Henry VIII, and given to the King as a gift.

Today, huge grounds and ornamental gardens compliment the massive palace building, both of which are open to the public.

A range of events takes place throughout the year, and guided tours every day.

IMPORTANT - Although venues are reopening, their hours may differ from normal, and most now need prebooking before you visit.
