Beautiful palace where the royal princes live. Huge green area surrounding it perfect for a weekend stroll.
Visit the previous home of Queen Victoria, Princess Diana, and the now current home of Prince William and Kate. Harry lives here too in a cottage on the property. The gardens are beautiful and free to visit. The palace exhibits were interesting; you'll learn a lot about Queen Victoria, her quick ascension to the throne at only 18, and her beloved husband Prince Albert. You'll see her wedding dress, and also on view was a special exhibition covering the royals' fashion with dresses worn by Queen Elizabeth II, her sister Margaret, and Princess Diana. Very cool!
If you go to London this is most definitely one of the places to see. A nice reprieve that is in the heart of the city without feeling that way!
Even before the Buckingham Palace was famous for being a royal residence of Queen Victoria was rather attached to this palace she called home. Her childhood memories are quite vivid in display at the Kensington Palace Princess' chambers with her little gowns, gloves, journals, artwork and crafts. Though Queen Victoria is known to be the famous resident this palace is more popular among pop culture as Princess Diana and Prince William and Harry's home since the eighties. The palace is very close to High Street Kensington Underground Station and from Marble Arch as well.
Previous home to Princess Diana, and the current home to Prince William and Kate.
This was a wonderful museum. The guides were very friendly and helpful. The museum doesn't have air conditioning so on a hot day it wasn't very crowded. I loved the "Victoria Revealed" tour. Very informative. An actress played Queen Caroline during our visit and she was wonderful.
A must go .... Beautiful Gardens!!! It's so nice to have a drink or a tea in the afternoon at The Orangery Restaurant!!
Kensington Palace is contained within Kensington Gardens, and is an impressive architectural building in its own right.
