Description

Explore the forgotten story of Indian Army soldiers who camped at Hampton Court Palace in the early 20th century, through a new display of previously unseen objects, photographs, film and personal stories.
Indian Soldiers at Hampton Court Palace

Soldiers from the Indian Army camped at Hampton Court Palace on a number of occasions in the early 20th century. They were invited to join the coronation celebrations of Edward VII (1902), George V (1911) and George VI (1937) as well as the First World War peace parades in 1919. For some, this would have been their first visit to England.

This remarkable new collection brings to life the experiences of those within the camps as well as the press and public reactions to their presence.

Is included with the standard entry ticket to the palace.
