Plan for the Magic Garden, Hampton Court Palace

We aim to build a truly unique and immersive children's play garden at Hampton Court Palace which will encourage young learners to translate the stories of the palace into their play with Tudor-inspired design and features and a liberal sprinkling of magic!

The Magic Garden at Hampton Court Palace

Historic Royal Palaces is building an exciting new interactive play garden on the site of the former Tudor Tiltyard where Henry VIII entertained the Court. Designed by six time gold medal winner at Chelsea, Robert Myers, Hampton Court and its stories are the inspiration for the garden. With Tiltyard towers, fire-breathing dragons and the mythical beasts lair, the Magic Garden will enable visitors of all ages to leave the site with a better sense of what makes Hampton Court special and unique. A sense that is all the more powerful because it has been acquired through their own imaginations, creative efforts, explorations and discoveries.

Our ambition for this unique children's play garden can only be realised with your support. Exciting opportunities for acknowledgement for individuals, corporates and grant makers are available as outlined below:
