Take a boat cruise out from London to Hampton Court Palace in Surrey.
Day 1 - East Molesey, London
Expect to spend the entire day on this adventure. From April to October getting to Henry VIII's stunning stomping grounds from Westminster can take up to 4 hours, so check before embarking. If boating does not interest you, just hop on the train or bus to get to the Tudor Palace, built in 1515 by Cardinal Wolsey, for the amazing gardens, the maze, the kitchen (it is like a village in itself), historical tours, and many and ever changing activities.
If you need more space or the kids need a good run around nearby Bushy Park is the place. Stag deer roam the park freely for some captivating scenery.
