The Local Area
Just a few minutes’ walk from the Hampton Court Palace gates can be found the welcoming “Hampton Court Village” as it is known locally.
A traditional British village with its range of independent shops, bars, cafes and restaurants - these include antiques, arts & crafts, photography, clothes, shoes, delicatessens, and hair salons to name but a few.. You will also find places to eat and drink to suit every taste and budget. The local business owners of the village are always delighted to welcome visitors of all nationalities.
A leisurely stroll along riverside is a pleasure at any time of year either by following the towpath alongside the River Thames, past the Palace in to Kingston-upon-Thames and onward to Richmond. In the other direction, passing Molesey Boat Club and East Molesey Cricket Club towards Walton-upon-Thames. Alternatively, visitors could enjoy the regular ferry boat service that is available to Kingston, Richmond and if you choose meandering all the way to Westminster.
