Apartment 6 - the Albemarle Suite


  • 21-22 September 2019

Ticketing information


This year we will be opening up Apartment 6 on the East Front - a former grace-and-favour apartment and the last granted by Queen Victoria before she died in 1901.

Originally formed and fitted out for the first Earl of Albemarle, a favourite of William III, it is now a private event space and was an exhibition space until 2018.

Hampton Court Palace is not open for free but the formal gardens are!

Hampton Court Palace is not part of the Open House London offer. Anyone wishing to visit the palace must buy an admission ticket or show their HRP members card.

The formal gardens to the south and east of the building will be open as part of Open House London so the Royal School of Needlework will be offering regular tours of their education studios on both the Saturday and Sunday.
