Perhaps use the leisure facilities before enjoying  a good Hilton breakfast before we depart to Hampton Court Palace for their Florimania when the palace interior will be brought to life with a rich tapestry of colourful floral displays with many different sights and scents to take in.
The display will explore the theme of royal women by taking its inspiration from some of the keenest garden-loving queens in history such as Queen Mary II and her collection of exotic plants at Hampton Court Palace, Marie Antoinette and the gardens of Versailles, Queen Charlotte at Kew and many more.  Experts from the National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies, the organisation behind the beautiful displays, will be on hand to give demonstrations and provide extra information for visitors.

Highlights of Hampton Court Palace include the 60 acres of glorious gardens, the magnificent Henry VIII State Apartments & kitchens, William III State Apartment, The Great Hall, The Chapel Royal &  the beautiful works of art from the Royal Collection.
