Windsor or Hampton Court Palace?

Jump to last reply

Hi all, I know this is an age-old question, but I have a slightly different spin on it because I've got my girls (12 and 9) on this trip. Would love to get your thoughts, highlights, impressions of the two places---so that I can rank them on the list of all the things to see this trip.

We'll be in London 6 nights after we land. (From there, we'll travel to France for 2 weeks, then return for 1 last night in London before our afternoon flight home.)

More than likely we won't leave London at all, but if we were to choose just *one* day trip out of London (something to keep in our hip pocket if we want to get out of the city center), which would you choose, and why?

This technically isn't our first trip to London, but our last trip (my "Virgin Voyage" with a teething toddler) involved a lot of long walks pushing baby in stroller through Hyde Park and visiting with family. So we have a LOT we want to see this time, not counting Windsor or Hampton Court Palace.

The girls have seen French castles (Loire Valley in 2013) and might enjoy the grandeur and architecture of an English castle or palace... even if they won't be able to relate to all the history specifics. Not to mention, we all might enjoy a relaxing train ride out of London for a half a day as well, if the pace of London ends up being too much.

We'll want to travel by public transit and spend no more than a half day.

Thoughts?

Thanks!
