About

Join our historic cooks each weekend this year to discover what life working in King Henry VIII’s kitchens was like in the 16th century.

Built to feed over 450 people twice a day, the kitchens at Hampton Court were staffed by 200 people, toiling away to cook two meals each day that the court was in the building.

Come and find out what it took to create Tudor dishes from robust roasts and stews, to delicate confectionery sweets; and see how Henry’s cooks created recipes fit for the King.

Each weekend this year (excluding 02 - 05 June) you’ll have the opportunity to try your hand at roasting, Tudor style, and see if you have what it took to work as a tournebroche in Henry VIII’s kitchens, turning the meat in front of the roaring fires.

If roasting isn’t for you, then there’ll be a selection of other dishes being created for you to discover. Perhaps you’ll take some tips away with you for creating your own Tudor feast at home?
