Situated on the bank of the Thames, a 35-minute rail ride from central London, Hampton Court Palace is a short stroll from the BR station of the same name.
Since its early days as Henry VIII’s flamboyant ‘pleasure palace’, Hampton Court has always been a centre of hospitality and entertainment. The first buildings date back to the 11th Century. It was Thomas Wolsey who transformed the Palace, adding sumptuous private chambers for his own use, as well as three suites for the new royal family: one each for King Henry VIII, Queen Katherine of Aragon and their daughter Princess Mary. So much did the king like it that in 1628 he appropriated Hampton Court and spent the equivalent of £18 million in today’s money restoring and expanding it. All of Henry’s six wives came to the palace.
Enjoy the thrill of celebrating with your loved ones in the footsteps of royalty. Discover for yourselves the majesty and flamboyance of Hampton Court Palace, from the tranquil scented gardens and secret riverside spots, to the opulent state rooms.
Hampton Court Palace has a multitude of possible venues to hire, from the Palace State Apartments to beautiful exclusive external venues and locations. The four main spaces to hire include, the Palace, the Little Banqueting House, the Garden Room and a marquee site.
