Before 12pm
  • Kensington Palace unveils a palace of secret stories and public lives
  • Explore the beautifully landscaped gardens and see where Prince William lives with Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, and their children
  • Experience life as a 17th and 18th-century royal courtier and see the new Diana: Her Fashion Story exhibition

An actual royal palace - it's where Prince William lives with the Duchess of Cambridge and their two 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. The Diana: Her Fashion Story exhibition celebrates the life and style of the 'People's Princess'.

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).

Afterward, 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.

Insider tip

Queen Victoria was born in the palace and met her eventual husband Albert there. It was only when she was coronated that she finally moved into Buckingham Palace. Such a hard life...

A visit to Kensington Palace was one of my favourite venues to visit in London, especially seeing Diana’s dresses which are displayed beautifully, so visitors are able to see every angle of the dresses on display.. I felt a connection with Diana at Kensington and while viewing her dresses. Highly recommend this visit.

Although we had a short time to visit, directions and information was clear to use it enough to go around almost all areas. Keeping in mind to plan some additional time to enjoy the garden and café, maybe to have a breakfast at the pavillion.

Beautiful setting of Kensington Gardens ‘my favourite Royal park. Excellent experience at the Pavillion restaurant. Good 10 minute background talk to Queen Victoria but the palace itself isn’t very interesting. Few paintings, little furniture so quite difficult to imagine it in past times. Staff very helpful though.

Loved hearing about the history of the Stuarts in a memorable telling of the highlights of each character. The staff are very knowledgeable and communicate well.
