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...

We had a wonderful, unhurried tour of the palace, the gardens were beautiful in the sunlight; we were lucky enough to hear two of the short talks, and ended it all with wine and scones - and a bit of the WEDDING CAKE in the café. Such a nice and relaxing way to spend a few hours in London - thank you!

The staff was very helpful and the exhibits were quite interesting and accessible. Kensington is a spot I wish I’d visited in prior years! I will definitely return.

I arrived at Kensington Palace around 940am and was first in the line. I went straight in at 10am opening. The que was quite long at 11am. Loved the Diana display but thought it quite small. Went thru the Kensington Palce after and then a nice coffee and cake and a walk around the Sunken Gardens which was magnificent at this time of year
