Tudor glory with private transport and Blue Badge Guide
An absolute must for any fans of Tudor history but so much more as well. Built by Cardinal Wolsey and confiscated by Henry VIII. Substantially rebuilt by William and Mary in the late 1600s this exceptional example of royal wealth and power should not be missed.
I will meet you at your hotel and drive you to the Palace. Perhaps we will go via Richmond Park and stop to see the herds of deer that roam in this ancient Royal hunting ground.
We usually can park on-site and, having purchased tickets, we enter via the Tudor gatehouse and into Base Court. On busy days we might have to park away from site but there is an overflow car park about 10 minutes walk away.
Afterwards I will return you to your hotel or we could add on a visit to Windsor Castle which is about 30-45 minutes away. See attached link. http://www.toursbylocals.com/PrivateTour-WindsorHamptonCourt
Meeting Location + Tour Duration
Meeting location: We meet at your hotel. I am equally happy, if you prefer, to meet you at the Palace.
End location: I will return you to your hotel. If you prefer, we can part company at the Palace and you can proceed at your leisure.

I am relaxed about timings so if we overrun a little it is not usually a problem.

Mike was the most excellent guide to Hampton Court! His knowledge and attention to details is superb! His vehicle was comfortable and clean. We had the most excellent time in his care and I would love to hire again when I am in London in 2018. J. Stallworth
