Victorian Christmas
Dec 21, 2019 - Jan 5, 2020

Ever wondered how a royal Christmas was spent in the Victorian era? The religious fabric of the holiday began to weaken during this period, while burgeoning income and leisure time allowed a new kind of festivity to bloom.

This special exhibit takes a look at how Christmas changed from the Georgian era, and how the queen's reign and personal influence helped Christmas take its modern shape. You'll be surprised at how many traditions took root in the 19th century!

An actual royal palace - it's where Prince William lives with the Duchess of Cambridge and their kids. Though you probably won't bump into them in the hallway, it's still a fascinating window into the lives of royals past and present.

London's Kensington Palace has been a royal residence for over 300 years. At Queen Victoria's behest, the State Rooms were opened to the public in 1899, on her 80th birthday. Since then it's been both a private residence for the royal family and a public museum.

Head up the magnificent Grand Staircase, visit the King's State Apartments, and the King's Gallery. The beautifully ornate Cupola Room and the Drawing Room will make you feel like you're among royalty (which, of course, you are).

Afterwards, swing through the Palace Gardens. Wander the shady Cradle Walk and look out upon the ornamental flowers in the Sunken Garden. It's a great opportunity to practice your royal wave.
