From now until Friday 4 May 2018, Henry VIII’s Tudor Kitchens and surrounding cloisters will be subject to major work as we lay down new electrical cables to power our palace in the years to come. Archaeologists are also using this opportunity to help us better understand the history of the Tudor Kitchens and passageways.
The existing electrical system is almost 70 years old, and the work will allow the palace to continue operating into the future - as well as giving a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to study buried archaeology in this part of the palace.
Unfortunately, this work will impact on what visitors to Hampton Court Palace can see in and around the Tudor Kitchen area. There will be no fire in the Tudor Kitchens for the duration of the works.
Free admission will also be granted to the Palace’s formal gardens on the following days during the palace’s summer season:
Come face to face with mysterious mythical beasts, storm the battlements and discover the secret grotto in the Magic Garden at Hampton Court Palace.
Open daily until 29 October 2017
