Hampton Court Palace

Hampton Court Palace, one of two remaining Tudor Palaces, is a magnificent sprawl of red-brick buildings and wonderful gardens nestling beside the River Thames in south-west London.

The biggest problem you will have when visiting Hampton Court Palace is seeing everything on offer in a single day with royal re-enactments, an imaginative Tudor-themed playground for children a sensational art collection and lots more vying for attention.

The gardens, both formal and wild are home to the famous Maze and what is claimed to be the oldest productive grapevine in the world.
