Coronavirus (Covid-19) update
Due to the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic the Community Access Scheme programme across our sites has changed. We are currently unable to accept £1 cards, group leader cards or assist with community group visits.
The Community Access Scheme will re-commence early 2021 and we look forward to welcoming back our local groups.
What is the Community Access Scheme?
The Community Access Scheme (CAS) offers free entry, practical advice and support for community groups based locally to Hampton Court Palace.
Who is it for?
Groups based in Surrey, Kingston, Richmond, Houslow, Merton and Wandsworth. Especially those who would not normally visit the palace or see it as a place of interest for them.

How can I get involved?
Group leaders must book a place on a Group Leader Training Day to discover more about the programme and get useful tips on what to do when bringing groups to Hampton Court Palace.
