Hampton Court is best visited in the festive season for one reason; the Christmas kitchens.
Just after Christmas the palace kitchens come alive with cooks re-creating a standard tudor Christmas dinner.
The rest of the castle gets involved and everyone is invited to court. I am a huge history geek so I love getting involved and it’s a perfect way of introducing little ones to the Tudors.
If you’re not completely exhausted then take a little tour of the Georgian half of the palace,it’s not as full on as the Tudor part but equally as beautiful.
Afterwards grab some Tudor style grub from the cafe.
The best part of visiting Hampton Court Palace is the cloaks you can wear; perfect for keeping you toasty whilst walking through the palace and fabulous for swishing!
