Don’t miss this fascinating exhibition about the development of Hampton Court Palace's beautiful gardens.

Situated adjacent to the East Front Gardens, this fascinating exhibition helps visitors to understand the evolution of the historic royal gardens at Hampton Court Palace, from their Tudor beginnings in the early 16th century right up to the present day.

Just go through the Garden Shop on the East Front to reach the Gardens' Exhibition. A palace ticket is not required but a gardens-only one will be needed between April and October.

There are screens to watch, games to play and lots of information about how the gardens developed over the centuries.
