It does get pretty busy, and lots of people get there for when the gates open at 10, but i've never found the crowds at Hampton that bad as it is quite a big site (unlike Chelsea, which is a real squeeze). Traffic can be awful, and the buses don't get priority, so sit in the queues like everyone else. We normally arrive at the start and finish about 5 - and in that time have seen everything, plus leisurely stops for lunch, coffee, tea and cakes. Never used the train, but would expect them to be quite busy. Have a wonderful time, its my favourite show!
