You will be welcomed to the magnificent Hampton Court Palace by one of the expert Palace Hosts who will introduce you to Henry VIII’s riverside residence and set you on your way to explore the spectacular State Apartments, Tudor Kitchens and glorious gardens.
A royal palace in the borough of Richmond upon Thames, Hampton Court Palace was built in 1515 by Cardinal Thomas Wolsey, favourite advisor to King Henry VIII. Once the most powerful man in the English court, second only to the King, Cardinal Wolsey fell out of favour with Henry after he failed to negotiate an annulment of his marriage to Catherine of Aragon so he could marry his latest obsession, Anne Boleyn. After Wolsey’s death in 1530, Henry VIII took charge of Hampton Court, turning it in to a hotel, a theatre and a huge private playground, using it to demonstrate his enormous wealth.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Hampton Court Palace, A308, East Molesey KT8 9AU England

One of the most exciting tours that we have taken during our trip to London. Both castles are amazing in their own ways. It's hard to tell which one is better. It's like a journey through centuries from Henry the 8th times to Charles lll nowadays. Special thanks to our guide Lucy, she gave us a lot of interesting information and good tips on how to better organize ourselves during the trip.

The time at Hampton court was too short and Windsor Castle too long. The pick up place had construction and not easy to find. The driver was great and Morton the tour guide was enthusiastic, smart and helpful. We certainly tipped them both.

Our Tour guide Ari was fantastic as well as the drive not sure of his name. Fantastic.. Ari knew so much she also gave us info along the way about places and monuments with suggestions. Hampton Court Palace was amazing. Get the audio guide it helps you learn the stuff too! Windsor was a cool village and area with Castle and shops. Pay attention to where the bus is, you can get confused.

My Mum and I loved this tour! Tish was absolutely amazing and so knowledgeable. Tish shared so much history on Hampton Court and Windsor Castle and made sure our trip went smoothly. We met some lovely people on the coach too. It was one of our favourite trips and we'd definitely recommend it and will be going again in the future. Thank you!

A great way to see two attractions in the one day Hampton Court was first and it was nice to be able to walk around with less people, which was by design by the tour operator. Windor castle was great shame we couldn't take photos of the exhibitions. Tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly/

It was a convenient and interesting tour! I think the most interesting part of our trip to London. Our tour guide Denxia was also a very hospitable, dynamic and capable guide and made everyone feel confident in her ability to handle our tour. Dan also drove very capably. So happy we decided to take this tour. The Golden Tours App is also a goldmine! You should download their app to make it convenient for you to see London and the surrounding areas. 👍🏼

Eileen was a lively guide. She kept us on pace and gave us so much information between stops. Know that the guide does not go into the palaces with you, rather leads you to the entrance where you are on your own while in there.

We had the most fantastic day with Ari visiting Hampton Court Palace and Windsor Castle. Ari was a fountain of knowledge, not just about these two historic places but about the whole of London and in fact England. She recommended other places not even on the tour which we visited today. She is an absolute asset to the Company. Ari is most professional and welcoming and shares her love and passion of England with all on her tours. The driver Vee was also great. Very careful driver, passionate and caring. Thank you.

Tish and Gil took us on a magical tour to Hampton and Windsor. A truly amazing experience that I would recommend to a whole range of friends and family. Tish also gave us a lot of information about London on the drive to the castles which we found very interesting and found a great add on to the tour. Thank you so much Tish and Gil.

Whoops, looks like something went wrong.
