Hampton Court Castle

History & Heritage

Hampton Court Castle

Hampton Court Castle started its journey in the early 15th Century. Set in the delightful Herefordshire countryside, surrounded by vast lawns, a stunning woodland backdrop, and magnificent award-winning gardens, the estate has an interesting and varied history.

The gardens and castle are open to the public during the summer, and the castle hosts celebrations, corporate events and spectacular weddings throughout the year.

The gardens at Hampton Court Castle are lovingly cared for throughout the year by our dedicated gardening team.

Open to the public in the spring and summer months, they have a lot to offer, including a maze, beautiful herbaceous borders, water features and fantastic views of the forest backdrop.

The river walk provides the opportunity to further explore the estate, offering stunning views of the castle from across the ha-ha wall and a taste of the surrounding Herefordshire countryside.

Hampton Court Castle, like many buildings of its age, has been through an immense journey over the centuries. The oldest parts of the castle, including the Chapel, date back to 1427, with royal permission to crenellate awarded in 1434. Difficult times and changing circumstances led to the castle going through various transformations, which are reflected in how it looks today.

The castle is now fully restored and has retained a truly special atmosphere. It still operates as a place that brings immense joy and charm to many people, and we hope that this can continue for centuries to come.
