How Many Courtyards at Hampton Court?

Fountain Court at Hampton Court Palace

Fountain Court was designed by Sir Christopher Wren and is one of the many courtyards at Hampton Court Palace. Sir Christopher is perhaps better known as the architect of Saint Paul's Cathedral.

How many courtyards are there at Hampton Court Palace? As I explored I kept discovering more until I eventually lost track! How many can you see on the aerial photo? After you've counted the courtyards can you find the famous maze?

I don't think I've ever been into the Palace but I remember the maze from many years ago. I once went to a flower show at Hampton Court several years ago. The day dawned bright and sunny which brought out so many crowds that I nearly gave up just trying to get there.

Just imagine what it might be like to be the owner of this place, and to be able to go anywhere within.
