What do you give the person who has everything (apart from Historic Royal Palaces Membership of course)?
How about a private in-depth guided tour of Hampton Court Palace!
Our Hampton Court Palace Guides undertook a Level 2 (site specific) training course in 2012, organised by the Institute of Tourist Guiding. They’ve always really known their stuff about the palace but now they’ve developed their expertise even further by taking and passing a bespoke palace-specific ITG course – a first for any Historic Royal Palaces staff.
Guides need to be booked and paid for in advance - preferably two weeks in advance so that we can guarantee availability - but thanks to the wonder of credit cards we only need a few days notice unless you have a specific tour request that may require a specific guide.
Tours start at £110 + VAT (£132) for a 1½ hour tour. This is in addition to palace admission tickets.
So whether it’s someone with a love of history who has a ‘significant’ birthday coming up, a couple celebrating a special anniversary or a group of like-minded people who want to get the most from their visit, a private guided tour could be the answer.
What other experience could you buy the person who has everything that only costs £1.47 per minute (for a 1½ hour tour) regardless of the number of people in the group, so family and friends can come too?
