Kensington Palace

Kensington Palace

Kensington Palace has been a royal residence for over 300 years, and it was here that Queen Victoria was born and spent her childhood and, recently, the palace was home to Diana, Princess of Wales. Set within the tranquillity of Kensington Gardens, this is the most intimate of royal palaces, not simply an impressive stage for the ceremonies of court life but a charming and much-loved home. The magnificent State Apartments give a glimpse of court life, with an impressive display of paintings from the Royal Collection.

The Sunken Garden - This intriguing garden was laid out during the reign of Edward VII and re-creates the formal gardens that existed at Kensington Palace in the 17th century when it was admired by Samuel Pepys, amongst others, as 'a might fine cool place... with a great layer of water in the middle'.

Diana: Her Fashion Story -
Trace the evolution of the Princess’s style, from the demure, romantic outfits of her first public appearances, to the glamour, elegance and confidence of her later life.

Don’t miss an extraordinary collection of garments, including Victor Edelstein’s iconic ink blue velvet gown, famously worn at the White House when the Princess danced with John Travolta.

Please note this exhibition is closed until 25 April 2018.

The Orangery - The Orangery Café and Restaurant provides a wide range of refreshments from morning coffee and light lunches to afternoon tea. A children's menu is also available. All food is home-made daily on site.

Closed 24th -  26th December.
