The delightful Hampton Court Palace gardens are a must-see to explore. This place is huge and it might take a day to wander around the palace and the gardens. The kids would love the maze garden and the adults would love the plants and flowers surrounding the palace. The gardens are lovely and photogenic on a beautiful blue sky day. The only disadvantage is that – in some gardens there are no shades at all. Be prepared when visiting here because summer in London can be really scorching hot. Don’t forget to bring your bottled water or your sun lotion.
The delightful Hampton Court Palace Gardens are worth a trip to the south of London.
Perhaps, of all the gardens here, the Pond Gardens are the most beautiful.
These were originally ponds made for Henry VIII.
Later, the ponds were transformed into gardens by Mary II to make way for her exotic plants collections.
There’s a 300-year old maze garden here where the prince and princesses used to play.
Some gardens here can be enjoyed for free and others for a fee.
There’s over 60 acres of gardens that visitors can relax on a summer day.
Parts of the gardens run down to River Thames.
There are over a million plant bulbs for you to see.
And oh, don’t forget to see the largest vine in the world next to the Pond Gardens.
Other gardens worth visiting here are: The Kitchen Garden, The Magic Garden, The Rose Garden and Privy garden.
