Beautiful palace with all of it's rich oppulance. The art on the walls and ceilings is awesome. Loved the exit of Princess Diana's gowns.

This is a nice building in Kensington gardens. We visited an exhibition of Diana’s dressers, which was interesting. There is a gift shop and a coffee shop in the building.

Amazing! Beautiful house and grounds of course but the exhibitions were great... wish we had longer to spend there. Gift shop seemed expensive. Ticket price not too bad for what you see.

We bought tickets ahead of time which saved us time. There are two parts to the tour: the current attraction and the family suites of Queen Victoria. Both were quite interesting.

Got early tickets and it was very quiet. Loved seeing the clothes, which were beautiful. The rest of the palace is stunning and the memorial garden is beautiful.

Kensington Palace’s heyday highlights an interesting period in history from William & Mary through to the George’s. There are a few talks given at various time during the day that provide a great overview that are definitely worth a listen. Good tea room, definitely worth...More
