Our ‘on your doorstep’ blog series showcases some of the counties best kept secrets alongside leading attractions, destinations and events. Living in Surrey offers a unique blend of suburban tranquillity and close proximity to some of England’s most historic and culturally rich sites. One of the jewels in our local crown is undoubtedly Hampton Court Palace. This Royal Palace is possibly the county’s most popular tourist attraction, boasting centuries of royal history and 60 acres of magnificent gardens to explore.

It also provides the setting for perhaps the county’s, if not country’s, most unique music festival, Hampton Court Palace Festival. The event brings world-class music and entertainment to the grounds of Hampton Court Palace, providing a breath-taking backdrop for what might be the world’s most luxurious music festival. The 2024 Hampton Court Palace takes place between 11-21 June 2024 with a line up that includes Sir Tom Jones, Jack Savoretti, Paloma Faith, Sam Ryder and many more.

A Brief History of Hampton Court Palace

Before diving into the festival itself, it’s worth appreciating the grandeur of its setting. Hampton Court Palace, once the residence of King Henry VIII, is a stunning example of Tudor architecture complemented by later Baroque additions. Its halls have echoed with the footsteps of monarchs and statesmen, making it a living museum of British history.

The Festival Experience

Every summer, the Hampton Court Palace Festival transforms the palace grounds into a regal concert venue. The Tudor Base Court and the East Front Gardens are just two of the spectacular locations where performances are held, offering attendees an unforgettable backdrop of history and beauty.

World-Class Performances

The festival has a reputation for attracting top-tier talent. Past performers have included Sir Tom Jones, Kylie Minogue, and the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, ensuring a diverse line up that caters to all musical tastes. Whether you are a fan of classical symphonies, pop hits, or rock anthems, the festival’s program is sure to have something that suits your taste.

Unique Ambience

One of the unique aspects of the Hampton Court Palace Festival is its intimate and relaxed atmosphere. Unlike larger, more commercial festivals, this event offers a more personal experience where the audience can enjoy music in a setting that feels both grand and exclusive. The limited number of tickets ensures that each performance is an intimate affair, allowing for a closer connection between the artist and the audience.

Gourmet Picnics and Fine Dining

The festival isn’t just about the music; it’s also a feast for the senses. Attendees can indulge in gourmet picnics on the palace lawns, complete with a selection of fine wines and champagne. For those looking for an even more luxurious experience, there are pre-concert dining options within the palace’s elegant rooms, offering a truly regal evening.
