Hampton Court Palace

For hundreds of years, Hampton Court Palace has provided the backdrop to celebrations and Royal weddings. It was a home to Henry VIII, who used it for lavish banquets.
Now you can entertain your guests in the magnificent surroundings of Henry VIII’s Great Hall or in the King’s Guard Chamber, with its impressive display of weaponry. Banquets and receptions can be combined with special palace tours, complete with guides in period costume.

It’s not all about the interiors, however. During the summer, the gardens and courtyards can be used for receptions and entertainment, including the marquee site. Guests can explore the grounds after couples say "I do” in the picturesque Garden Room, which is licensed for civil ceremonies. Wedding receptions without dancing can also now be held in the palace itself.

For visitors, we offer quality food at excellent value in our cafes. Located in the original jousting arena, the Tiltyard Cafe offers freshly made hot dishes - including a daily special with a palace theme. A private dining area is also available for hire. Meanwhile, the Privy Kitchen dishes up enticing hot and cold food. The Fountain Cafe is open throughout the summer season for afternoon tea, served to your table, while the Magic Garden offers snacks and drinks in the enchanted surroundings of the children's play area    

Venue secret

In the Privy Kitchen, which was Queen Elizabeth I’s kitchen, we have developed a truly unique eating experience – moving from a modern to a more authentic Tudor style.
