Hampton Court Station
Hampton Court station is just 40 minutes from London Waterloo and 20 minutes from Wimbledon. Located in the town of East Molesey and in Transport for London’s Zone 6, Hampton Court station takes its name from the renowned Hampton Court Palace just steps from the station.
Built in the early 1500s by Cardinal Wolsey inspired by Renaissance cardinals’ palaces, expanded by Henry VIII, and restored by William III, Hampton Court Palace features a unique blend of Tudor and Baroque architecture.
For a fun day out with the kids, explore the Palace grounds and get lost in the UK’s oldest surviving hedge maze, or try your hand at a game of real tennis on the courts dating back to the 1600s.
If you’re looking for outdoor activities, why not head north from the Palace and visit Bushy Park or stop at the Hampton Court Golf Club and hit a few rounds. It's not just Richmond Park either as the place to spot deer, Bushy Park boasts a herd of its own. Formerly the Palace’s hunting grounds, the red and fallow deer now roam freely.
Or cross back over the river and explore East Molesey. The high street offers all the modern amenities like national chains and local gems, as well as a number of historic and Grade II-listed homes, pubs and churches.
