Included in palace admission

Hampton Court Palace’s world-famous gardens include 60 acres of spectacular formal gardens and 750 acres (304 hectares) of parkland, all set within a loop of the River Thames.

Our gardens are home to the world’s oldest puzzle maze, a record-breaking grape vine, 3 National Plant Collections, over 1 million flowering bulbs in the Wilderness and a huge variety of wildlife, including the descendants of Henry VIII’s deer herd.

Garden highlights

The gardens come to life in Spring with a mass of flowering bulbs in the Wilderness and formal gardens. Summer sees the spectacular herbaceous border in the East Front Gardens at its best, while Queen Mary II’s Exoticks come out in the Lower Orangery Garden. The Great Vine grapes are harvested at the end of the summer then the autumn colours in the Tiltyard, Wilderness and 20th Century Garden as deers rut in Home Park. In the winter, striking outlines of trees stretch across Home Park and, if we’re lucky, snow highlights the topiary of the Privy Garden.
