Hampton Court Palace Surrey Events & Parties

If there’s one British royal who knew how to indulge, it was Henry VIII. Follow in his footsteps and throw a party in his favoured residence, Hampton Court Palace in Surrey, just outside London. Nestled on the bank of the River Thames, this striking palace has been hosting galas, celebrations, and banquets since 1514 and has seen royals and dignitaries pass through its halls for more than 500 years.

Small event spaces and grand halls are yours to choose from to host your next event. Go traditional with a large party in the Great Hall or Cartoon Gallery with stunning artwork on the walls or choose something more intimate with the Little Banqueting House, a charming building in the palace gardens. For something truly extravagant, marquees can be set up in the 750-acres of parkland in the grounds, allowing you to host an event for hundreds of guests, overlooking one of the most magnificent palaces in the country.

Give your guests the royal treatment with a private tour of the palace and gardens before or during your event and enjoy five-star service from your dedicated event manager, experienced team and your choice of approved award-winning external caterers.
