A Tudor Christmas Tour Tickets and Dates

To accompany the Festive Fayre this year, visitors can now join ‘A Tudor Christmas' tour with special after-hours access to Hampton Court Palace. Gather around the fire in the 16th century kitchens, to hear about the Boar’s Head and other festive food, then head to the Tudor State Apartments with one of our expert Palace Guides. Learn how the Tudors enjoyed ghost stories, played games, sang carols, and exchanged gifts. Every-day cares were set aside and the Lord of Misrule held sway from Christmas Day to Twelfth night with spectacular Christmas feasts, drama and revels.

This tour will grant private access to the Tudor Apartments and a talk by the kitchens team. Join us for a mince pie before the tour begins.

This is purchased in addition to a General Admission ticket.
