Getting to Hampton Court Fair

Train To Hampton Court

The most direct option to Hampton Court is by rail from London’s Waterloo Station. A commuter service makes many stops before finally terminating at Hampton Court Station – the end of the line.

You simply have to cross the River Thames by Hampton Court Bridge and you’re there. Trains run generally every 30 minutes.

Waterloo Station isn’t the most convenient place for much London accommodation.

One attractive alternative is to get the District Line out to Richmond on Thames, the end of the line. Then get a bus or better still a boat to Hampton Court.

Richmond is in Zone 4 of the Underground charging districts.

The bus to Hampton Court stops in front of the Underground Station. The route is R68 and terminates at Hampton Court station..

For river transport options see below

Hampton Court by River Transport

The nicest way to visit Hampton Court is by river launch. As the river services make several stops along the way with connections back into Central London, you can choose how long you want on the river.

Westminster-Kew-Hampton Court- Richmond-Hampton Court

From April to October there are at least two services a day for the three to three and a half hour trip out to Hampton Court from Westminster. The service stops at many stops including Kew Gardens, Richmond and Kingston (the later are major suburban shopping centres). If you require a full day at Hampton Court Palace its probably best to get the underground out to Richmond then catch additional services that run for the one hour trip onto Hampton Court.

From London airports

From Heathrow Airport take the 111 bus.

From Gatwick Airport, take a train from the airport station to Clapham Junction and change to the Hampton Court train.

From City Airport, take the Docklands Light Railway to Canning Town and then the Jubilee Line to Waterloo. Catch the Hampton Court train from there.
Hampton Court Palace has some lockers where hand baggage and small rucksacks or overnight bags can be left. They are off Clock Court and a £1 coin is required to use them. The coin will be returned to you after use. However there is nowhere for large bags or suitcases to be stored. These may be left at the owners risk in the Warders Office by the West Gate. Please speak to the Warders when you present your ticket if you would like to use this facility. This facility may be withdrawn without notice.

If visiting the palace prior to your flight, please allow at least 1 1/2 hours to get back to the airport from Hampton Court prior to your check-in time.
