    What to Expect
    Take an intimate tour of London’s Kensington Palace, past and present home to members of the Royal Family for more than 300 years. Make your own way to the palace and enter immediately with your priority entrance ticket. Once inside, explore the extravagant space that has figured in many royal dramas through the ages. Wander through the King’s and Queen’s State Apartments, where you’ll see rare works from the Royal Collection. Then head outside and walk through the exquisite Kensington Palace Gardens.

    After you’ve toured the historic rooms and grounds, visit the ‘Victoria Revealed’ exhibition. Learn of Queen Victoria’s birth and upbringing on the estate, her rise to queendom at the age of 18, and the many impassioned roles she played in life from dedicated wife and mother to arts enthusiast and influential stateswoman. Admire the carefully designed staging and the wealth of personal objects on display. Leave with a better understanding of the humanness of this great English monarch.

    Loved the special Queen Victoria exhibit for her 200th Birthday! It was the reason that I visited Kensington Palace. Would like to see it become a permanent exhibit. It was very well-done and most educational.

    The Queen Victoria exhibition was on during our visit. Boy was she short!! The palace was easy to access and the staff polite. The display was quite the insight into Queen Victoria's life.

    We went to the Palace last week. There really wasn't much to see. The exhibits were not all that great. The grounds are huge. We were dropped off by a taxi and the entrance was way far into the property. The flowers were not blooming in the gardens, that would have helped our
