Since Henry VIII started breeding his Great War Horse, the Shire and Hampton Court have been closely connected. And our Shires – part of the last herd of working shires in London – are keeping the tradition alive.
Throughout Easter and the Summer months our Shires can be found at Hampton Court, taking visitors on Tram Rides around the grounds.
Come and meet the descendants of Henry’s Great Horses, and take a Tram Ride through 500 years of history.
Hampton Court Tram Rides take place on the following days:
- April – Easter School Holidays
- May, June – Saturdays, Sundays and and Bank Holidays
- July, August and September – every day
- October – half term
Find us in the magnificent East Front Gardens.
Tram rides last approximately 15 minutes, and are £4 for adults, £2.00 for children under 12. Note that a valid entrance ticket to Hampton Court Palace is required.
