About Hampton Court Palace

Hampton Court Palace is one of London's royal palaces and has housed some of Britain's most famous kings and queens, the most well known being Henry VIII. Hampton Court has a rich sporting history - the palace is home to the oldest surviving real tennis court in England, one of fewer than fifty real tennis courts in the world. There is also an 18-hole golf course in the palace grounds. During the Games, Hampton Court will host the start and finish of the men's and women's Time Trials in the Road Cycling competition, both of which are free events.

After the Games, Hampton Court Palace will continue to be a major tourist attraction and home to a number of exhibitions.
