Ever since George III set the tradition of allowing loyal servants to live at Hampton Court by Grace and Favour, the palace has been a thriving community. Now you too can discover the secret life of the palace once our daily visitors have gone home, by staying in one of our charming self-catering apartments.
Sleeps up to 6 people.
Situated in the service wing of the old Tudor palace, this apartment was originally used by the Officers of the Pastry. Begun by Cardinal Wolsey, the wing was enlarged with extra kitchens by Henry VIII to support his lavish entertaining. He even built a kitchen entirely for the baking of pies!
The Georgian House
Sleeps up to 8 people.
This imposing building just north of the main palace was originally a kitchen built in 1719 for George, Prince of Wales (later King George II). Later it became two houses, for the Clerk of Works and the Gardener. You can stay in the eastern house, with a private walled garden, handsome rooms and a fine view over the palace roofs.
