I went to Hampton Court Palace for the first time last week with my friend Amanda, and we had a great time exploring the grounds and inside of the castle. It takes about an hour by train to get there from King’s Cross, and it’s a super easy trip. You could easily go and spend the whole day there, but you could also make it an afternoon trip if time is of the essence for you.

THINGS TO DO

  1. Try the maze! They say it’s the most famous maze in the world – Commissioned around 1700 by King William III, the maze covers a third of an acre, is trapezoid in shape, and is the UK’s oldest surviving hedge maze. We didn’t go in ourselves (I think I would’ve had a panic attack!), but if you are up for the adventure it sounds so cool!
  2. Explore the Magic Garden. While designed primarily for kids, I think it’s just as cool for adults too! Each area represents myths, legends, stories, and even real objects that can be found at Hampton Court.
  3. Tour the Palace, of course! Tickets are rather expensive (£22), but it includes access to everything, including the palace, the maze, the magic garden, and more. I highly recommend getting an audio tour if you have the time! The palace is HUGE, and we didn’t have as much time to explore as we wanted to. I would have loved to hear about the history!
  4. Have afternoon tea at the Fountain Court Café. Nothing says royalty like tea and crumpets!

Overall I had a great visit to Hampton Court. Would I say it’s a necessity if you’ve got just a few days in London? Definitely not. But if you have more time, or have visited London in the past and are looking to explore outside of the city, I would highly recommend checking out Hampton Court!
