Having Hampton Court on our doorstep is a priviledge, particulary as all the grounds are open free of charge in winter months and half the grounds are accessible free in Summer months so the kids can have a good romp around. The Tiltyard cafe is really child friendly with a kids corner with toys and books, and a big green area for them to run around while you are enjoying a coffee on the sun-trap terrace. The new Magic Garden provides hours of fun for the kids!
