Details

The Tudor kitchens at Hampton Court Palace are famous throughout the world for being those of King Henry VIII.

They continued to be used for a further two hundred years, feeding the tables of Tudor, Stuart and Georgian monarchs and their many courtiers.

In more recent times the Kitchens have been brought back to life by our team of historic cookery experts. Interpreting history where it happened with regular demonstrations of Tudor roasting and experimentation with recipes, ingredients and methods, they provide the experience of the sights, sounds and smells of life in King Henry VIII’s kitchens.

Meet members of our team of history cooks in front of the roaring fire and discover what life was like cooking for the court of King Henry VIII.
