Attraction Information

Picture yourself as a member of the royal family at Hampton Court Palace.

Wander around the impressive grounds and gaze upon the vast opulence of the building itself! While you indulge your regal fantasies children will love playing the Great Garden Game with stories to investigate, brought to life with amazing characters from the past. They can become modern-day explorers with help from the Time Explorers app, which will take them on an interactive journey around the grounds.

See who emerges from the maze first and then take the under 5s to the family room where an array of large blocks, toys, books and fancy dress will keep them entertained while the older ones continue with their own adventure through history!

Stop off at the new Cumberland Art Gallery, where you can discover magnificent works from the Royal Collection, which includes paintings by van Dyck, Holbein, Rembrandt and Canaletto.

Once you’ve worked up an appetite, kids can pick up a Very Hungry Caterpillar lunchbox or hot meal from the restaurant, while fully-fledged butterflies can choose from the grown up menu!

Step back in time in your own palace for the day!
