Visiting Kensington Palace was an incredible experience! The palace is steeped in history, with beautifully preserved rooms and fascinating exhibits that take you back in time. The gardens are equally impressive, providing a serene and picturesque backdrop. As a history enthusiast, I found every moment captivating. Highly recommend for anyone visiting London!

We found the additional talks by the palace staff very interesting. The fact that the audio guide was also available in several languages is great, for us German of course. 👍🏼

I loved the Crown to Couture show! Very well organized & labeled. I bought 2 tickets for the Palace tour & 1 ticket for me alone for the C to C show, not realizing that they were together until we showed up.

We felt the exhibition was too focused on America and its culture rather than the Uk. The older garments were beautiful. Felt the couture element should have focused on the royal family such as the queen and prince phillip king and queen and other members of the royal family. The historical garments were beautiful

London’s Kensington Palace is a royal residence with a lot of stories, secrets, and history attached to it. You’ll require around an hour and a half to get a good look at the spectacular palace apartments and explore the ‘Victoria Revealed’ exhibition (Victoria: A Royal Childhood only), displaying an array of Queen Victoria’s personal objects where she once resided. Victoria: A Royal Childhood offers intricate details on her childhood and adolescence.

Discover the magnificently-done state apartments that reveal the lifestyle of its resident royals, including the likes of MaryII, William III, Queen Anne, and her son William, the last ruling member of the Stuart dynasty. Learn more about their consequential lives and dive deep into some of their agonizing secrets. Gaze at the masterpieces of architect and painter William Kent as you enter the Cupola Room and climb the King’s Grand Staircase.

Visit various other chambers such as The Presence Chamber, The Privy Chamber, The King’s Drawing Room, and the King’s Gallery where you can learn more about royal British living. Check out exuberant examples of what the royals wore during their rule in the 18th century and be amused by breathtaking artworks from the Royal Collection while there. Lastly, wander about in the Formal gardens, a former royal playground, and check out the exotic Victorian plant collections. These include Trachycarpus fortunei, Luma apiculata, Tropaeolum Speciosum, Cryptomeria Japonica, and many more.
