Food & drink festivals in beautiful, iconic settings
Historic Royal Palaces Food Festivals are extraordinary outdoor celebrations of food & drink in some of the UK’s most amazing settings. At Hampton Court Palace our Summer Food Festival takes place in the spectacular East Gardens over the August Bank Holiday and our Winter Food Festival takes over the historical courtyards of the palace for a truly festive food & drink experience. In September, the Food Festival moves to the iconic moat at the Tower of London with the same amazing mix of culinary experts cooking live along with artisan producers, street food, music and entertainment for a magical memorable 3 days.
Our partnership with Historic Royal Palaces is now in its 4th year, with an expected 50,000 visitors across all the shows this year.
Historic Royal Palaces Food Festival in August is held in the stunning grounds of one of the UK’s most famous palaces - Hampton Court Palace in South West London.This unique event allows 25,000 visitors to enjoy the food festival and the palace for just the cost of the palace entrance fee.The backdrop that both the Palace and its magnificent gardens offer made this event totally unique and extraordinarily memorable.
The Food Festival at the Tower is located at the foot of one of London’s most iconic landmarks. Taking over the entire Moat with the Tower as a backdrop, this is the first event of it’s kind. It combines the culinary cutting-edge of the festival with the prestige and heritage of its setting, making for a day out like no other.
Our Winter Food Festival is an intimate outdoor event for around 80 producers and brands in the setting of London’s Hampton Court Palace. Visitors are immersed in the delights of Christmas, enjoying speciality food and drink within the atmospheric Base Court, Clock Court and Fountain Court of the Palace and live cooking demonstrations in the Tudor kitchens.
