Hampton Court Gardens?

Sorry, but I'm a little confused. It seems as there are two Hampton Court Gardens......one near Kew Gardens on the Thames and one in Herefordshire. Am I correct? Or am I just confused by the names? We went to England last May and saw as many gardens as we could squeeze in (including Kew and Batsford Arboretum, Hidcourt, Kitsgate) and are planning another trip this coming spring. Which Hampton Court Garden?????

When I google it seems there may be something called Hampton Court in Kew Gardens, a section of Queens, NYC. This may be the source of confusion since there are also the Kew Gardens on the Thames.

Hampton Court Palace, Richmond, London. Hampton Court Castle. Herefordshire. Both have associated gardens.

The one you are likely looking for is the one attached to the Royal Palace of Hampton Court on the Thames in outer London. The gardens attached to Hampton Court are world famous. Hampton Court Palace got big under Henry VIII, just like he did. It has many royal connections. I have no knowledge of the Herefordshire one although my wife and I collect gardens.
