A great day out

What’s on in The Gardens

The Gardens at Hampton Court Castle are now open every day until 1st October 2023. You can find details of upcoming events below, but there’s lots to do any time you visit, whether there’s an event on or not!

We have fabulous formal gardens, a maze, sunken garden with a waterfall, a Dutch garden, expansive lawns and river walks. New for 2023, we also have a castle play area! A great new space complete with turrets, tunnels, scramble nets and a slide – all surrounded by magnolias and some new tree carvings.

The Orangery Cafe is open daily for lunch or cream tea, and this space has been given a new lease of life by a new catering company who are incorporating plenty of local produce and a fresh new take on our menu.

Guided tours of the historic Castle will be running on Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays this season. You can find out more about the castle here.

Please see the Visit Us page for opening times and prices for the gardens and Castle, and follow us on Facebook and Instagram for the latest updates.

Fantastic Family Day Out  |  R Gallen, Tripadvisor We've had a thoroughly fantastic day out exploring the grounds, playing on the play equipment and watching a fab jousting show! The sunken garden looked really magical and everything was beautifully maintained. Lunch in the cafe was good.
