The Gardens & Castle
The gardens at Hampton Court Castle attract visitors from all over the country. They feature an abundant Kitchen Garden encased by original Victorian walls, stunning formal gardens, vast lawns and river walks. At the centre of the maze, the gothic tower offers panoramic views across the estate and a secret passage leads down to the Sunken Garden. To find out more, visit our Gardens page.
Tours of the castle offer the chance to see some of the historic rooms. Your guide will take you through the history of the estate and the story of how the building has evolved over time. To read more about the history of the castle, visit our Castle page.
We try to be as disabled friendly as possible, although there are certain limitations given the nature of the building and grounds. For more information, please visit our Accessibility page.
Regrettably, no dogs are allowed anywhere on the estate, with the exception of assistance dogs.
