Join us for a quiet session in The Magic Garden at Hampton Court Palace, aimed at those living with or caring for someone with Autism, or those who have any other sensory needs, and their families and carers.

During this session, we will be permitting fewer people than usual and making adjustments to the experience of visiting this unique playground. We hope these changes will enable you to enjoy the Magic Garden alongside others who understand and empathise with the challenges faced when trying to plan an activity or day out.

Those attending the session will be able to enter at 09:00 and the session will end at 10:30. The Magic Garden will be open to everyone at 10:45 and will therefore start to get busy very quickly. Your ticket will only be valid for that date and time stated. 

Tickets will also enable you to enter the maze (open from 10:00).

About The Magic Garden

The Magic Garden is a unique, interactive play garden, inspired by the history and stories of Hampton Court Palace.

Built on the site of Henry VIII's former tiltyard, the garden includes a range of exciting elements for children and families to explore: from tiltyard towers and aerial walkways to a dragon, a mythical beasts' lair, a huge bejewelled crown and an underground grotto.
