Kensington Palace has been a home for members of the royal family for over 300 years and it was where Diana Princess of Wales lived. During it's recent refurbishment new gardens, shop, café and terrace were added and the Palace’s interiors were also restored to reflect the grandeur of their many royal residents and will be home to a series of new exhibitions.
Kensington Palace holds a wealth of history with many Royals calling it home over the years and it has all the glamour and grandeur you would expect of a palace. The King's Apartment has an amazing collection of old masters including Tintoretto and Van Dyck and the staircase walls are painted with William Kent's life sized portrayal of George I's court.Visit their website for more information, opening times and to buy tickets
