Want to schedule your event to coincide with Royal Ascot, the Henley Regatta or another of the Thames Valley’s amazing hospitality and public events?

Taking place in the stunning Tudor Courtyard, the Hampton Court Palace Festival provides world-class acts, a spectacular setting and the beautiful East Front Gardens to enjoy picnicking before the concert. VIP Concert & Dining Packages are available in the sumptuous State Apartments for an exquisite dining experience, taking in the full splendour of the Tudor Palace!
Chelsea may get the lion’s share of the attention, but the “other” Flower Show in the stunning surroundings of Hampton Court Palace is a right royal day out. From azaleas to zinnias, the dazzling displays of horticultural wizardry will take your breath away. Set against a backdrop of Hampton Court Palace, you can view the work of some of the world’s leading garden designers and maybe pick up an idea or two for your window boxes!
There are few more quintessentially English experiences than Henley Royal Regatta. On one week in July this sleepy Thameside town comes alive to welcome the elite of the world’s rowers for a nail-biting explosion of aquatic excellence. Straw boaters and floaty dresses are the order of the day as you sip a Pimm’s cup and cheer on improbably large boys in Lycra onesies. Does it make sense? Not a bit of it, but for sheer passion and spectacle, the Henley Royal Regatta simply can’t be beat.
