Tour options from Heathrow


This tour is currently unavailable because, although Hampton Court Palace is open, guided tours are not allowed.  It is unclear when this will change.


If my seven years in guiding have taught me one thing, it is that visitors to London like to hit the ground running!  So, why not let me arrange a car to pick you up from Heathrow and bring you to Hampton Court Palace where you can immediately immerse yourself in the incredible story of Henry VIII and his six wives.

After my 3 hour tour which will include such highlights as Henry's vast kitchens, his magnificent Great Hall and the Haunted Gallery, as well as exploring the glamorous apartments built for William III, you have a choice of what to do next.


Option 1 - the car that brought you from the airport can wait whilst you have your tour and then take you on to your destination.

Option 2 - when you arrive at Hampton Court, we'll put your luggage in the boot of my car and, once the tour is over, we'll retrieve it and take the train up to London.  After dropping off your luggage at a convenient point, we'll stroll around part of the centre of London.  You might like to take a look at St James', London's Royal Village and continue to learn about England's monarchy both past and present or you might opt for wealthy Mayfair which developed around England's aristocracy.  

Do check out other areas of my website to read the detail of my St James' and Mayfair tours.


Option 3 - if you would like a tour in the afternoon in the centre of London, but would rather miss out on the adventure of going up to town by train, we can all climb in the car that brought you from the airport and travel up to London in style!


These options offer you the chance to start your visit to London with a day packed full of fun, facts and happy memories.


Let me know how you would like to plan your day and where you need to be when, and I'll work out an itinerary for you and price it up.  To give you an idea on cost, the car from the airport to Hampton Court costs in the region of £80; my fee for a half day tour is £15 per person with a minimum charge of £135; my fee for an all day experience is a flat rate of £330.  In addition, there will be the cost of entry tickets to Hampton Court and, if you opt for a full day experience, the cost of transport up to London.
