Members-Only Rooftop Tours

Hampton Court Palace

Hampton Court Palace

Take advantage of a rare opportunity to climb to the very top of Hampton Court Palace to experience a unique view of the historic formal gardens and beyond. These members-only tours provide access to the best vantage point for the palace grounds, and are led by professional guides to ensure that the experience is as memorable as the scenery.

Demand is expected to be extremely high and due to the historic nature of the roof, group size is restricted; book early to avoid disappointment.

Please note that sensible, closed toe footwear must be worn and admittance will be refused if footwear is deemed unsafe. These tours are operated at height and the roof accessed by a large number of stairs. Please email us with any accessibility concerns at [email protected] prior to booking.

Rooftop tours are weather dependent. In the event of inclement weather it may be necessary to cancel the tour. Refunds will not be available in this case, participants are instead offered a private guided tour of Hampton Court Palace led by their rooftop tour guide.
