Hampton Court Palace is an awe-inspiring and flamboyant showcase for kingship. Its vast and never-ending vistas, courtyards, gardens and parkland, along with its magnificent State Apartments, rivalling the great palaces of Europe, are designed to impress.
King William III State Apartments A grand and lavishly laid out collection of state apartments built by the new monarchs. Walk through the rooms of this elegant part of the Palace and imagine the beautifully dressed courtiers revelling in the politics and gossip of court life. Gaze out of the windows to the magnificent King’s Privy Garden.
Henry VIII’s Apartments Walk in the footsteps of England’s most famous King and his six wives. Lavishly presented apartments include Henry’s Great Hall, the Great Watching Chamber, the Great Council Chamber and the processional route, allegedly haunted by Catherine Howard, Henry’s fifth wife.
Privy Garden – The Privy Garden is one of the most accurately reconstructed gardens at Hampton Court because so much was recorded about the original 1702 garden. The beautiful geometry of the garden seen against the stunning palace façade is a site not to be missed.
The Great Vine – Planted by Lancelot Capability Brown in 1768, this is the oldest vine in the world. See the many bunches of grapes develop through the Summer ready for harvest late August, early September.
Georgian Kitchen Garden – See how the fruit, flowers and vegetables were planted, tended and harvested for the king’s table in the 18th Century in this enormous garden, full of produce.
