Henry VIII’s former home is reopening its doors to the public.
Following the news that the Tower of London is opening next week, Hampton Court Palace is set to follow suit a week later.
On July 17, the famous palace will reopen after spending over 100 days behind closed doors due to Britain’s lockdown. The beautiful gardens reopened on June 18, but visitors have not been allowed inside. However, earlier this week (July 2), a statement on Facebook confirmed that this wouldn’t be the case for much longer.
The magic garden and the maze will remain closed, and mandatory social-distancing measures will be enforced elsewhere around the venue. And you don’t want to run the risk of Henry VIII’s wrath (or the ghost of…) if you don’t obey them.
Hampton Court Palace will be open Wednesdays–Sundays from 10.30am-5.30pm. Find out more and buy tickets via their website.
