Ticketing information

Included in palace admission Buy Hampton Court Palace tickets

Step into the dangerous declining years of Henry’s VIII’s reign.

Hampton Court Palace is alive with plots and intrigue. Once favoured courtiers, even queens, have fallen. Shadows gather around the court. Talk is dangerous, and even your most private thoughts may be held against you.

Now that the king has proclaimed himself Supreme Head of the Church in England, to oppose him is not only treason but heresy! Choose your enemies, choose your friends, but choose wisely.

Will you assist the authorities as they investigate the Queen herself, or will you help save her from her enemies?

Meet in Base Court.
