Visitors who have tickets to one or more of our sessions will have access to the ground floor areas of Hampton Court Palace, including the Tudor Kitchen, Orangery and ornate Privy Gardens. Guests will also be able to enjoy the elegant formal gardens and can feast and sup like Kings and Queens in our food village on the lawns or within the Palace cafes.

There will be a selection of food and beverage options available in the formal gardens of Hampton Court, all take card payment. These will be open from 10am to 5pm and 6pm to 8pm. In addition the Tiltyard café and Privy Café will be open until 5pm.

Please note strictly no food or drink apart from bottled water can be taken inside the Palace. There will not be any refreshments available onsite once the evening performance commences.

Our festival runs in two key parts: daytime, from 10am-5pm and evening from 6pm to 9.30pm. The Palace will close at 5pm and reopen at 6pm, allowing staff to clean the site and prepare for our evening performance. Visitors with tickets to both daytime events and the evening session will be allowed to stay in the Gardens ahead of the Palace reopening at 6pm.
