Getting to the Hampton Court Flower Show
If you are planning to drive to the show and wish to use a sat nav, please note that the show itself does not have a postcode – this is because it is a temporary event held in the parkland surrounding Hampton Court Palace. The closest village to the show is East Molesey. If you need a local postcode for your sat nav, the postcode of the palace is KT8 9AU, but please note that this is NOT the postcode for the show car parks; you will need to follow the AA signage for the show car parks when you reach the surrounding area.
The show is easily accessible from the M25 (exit 12, A308) or from central London (via the A3 and A309).
Motorcycle parking is available in both car parks at a cost of £10 per day.
Accessing the show from the coach park
If you are travelling by coach, your coach will park in the Hampton Court Green car park. To reach the showground, there are three options:
Walking to the show: it is a 20–25 minute walk that involves using a footbridge across the road outside the palace
If you prefer not to walk: there is a shuttle bus service to Hampton Court station, from where you can take a ferry to the showground (£2.50 for a single journey)
There is a mobility bus service that runs between the Hampton Court Green car park and the entrance to the show for visitors with limited mobility.
Park & ride service
There is a park & ride service available at Apps Court Farm on the A3050 (Junction 11), costing £6 – follow the red signage. Once parked, you can take the courtesy bus service from Apps Court Farm to the park & ride drop off point at Molesey Lock. From the drop-off point, it is a 15-minute walk to the show, or if you prefer not to walk you can use the ferry service operated by Parr Boats (£3.00 for a single journey). There are return bus services from Molesey Lock to Apps Court Farm throughout the day (last service departs from Molesey Lock at 7.30pm Tuesday to Saturday, and at 5.30pm on Sunday).
Travel by train
The closest railway station to the show is Hampton Court, which is a 30-minute journey from London Waterloo. This service is run by South West Trains and there are frequent trains throughout the show. If you’re travelling in a small group of 3–9 people you can save 34 percent with South West Trains GroupSave discount.
