History comes to life on a visit to Hampton Court Palace

Daily and included in your ticket

Immerse yourself in the stories of the palace with some of the people who created its history - look at our Encounters With The Past page for further details.

Or collect one of our audio tours if you would prefer a more D.I.Y. approach (subject to availability). These are available in foreign languages.

Periodic and included in your ticket
Hear what our staff have to say about the history of the palace or gardens in seasonal and/or occasional talks.

On demand and for a fee
Hire your own personal private guide from our pool of Institute of Tourist Guiding Level 2 accredited Guides. Prices start at £110 + VAT (£132). Tours can be tailored to the needs and/or interests of the party.

At weekends, for an additional £5 per adult or £2.50 per child (£4/£2 for members), join a guided tour of the Barrack Block & Wren Studio. Palace admission is not required for this tour.
