Just loved this. Can’t speak highly enough of it. Went with my daughter (10) who just loves history and the Royal Family so was ideal for her. I love Diana so especially enjoyed the exhibition of her clothes, was very emotional

We found the staff and guides extremely helpful. The history of the building is really interesting as is the decor and furniture. There was however a lack of information on a number of the exhibits which did not explain who or what the exhibits were....More

We visited Kensington Palace early on a Wednesday morning and the ticket line was very short. Once inside it was not overcrowded at all and we were able to take in each exhibit at our own pace. I really enjoyed the feature on Diana and...More

With an entrance fee of £25 per adult it would have meant £100 for four of us which equates to $200 Australian and I just could not see the value in wandering around a royal building set up as a tourist trap. Beautiful building and...More

I recommend coming here for the rich history! You get to view the palace that the historical royal families had all stayed at. There is no audio guide but there are sufficient write-ups in each room and a book with more information placed on a...More

I went July 2018 at 3 pm, and the queue was very short (maybe 10 couples or families). There are fans but no air conditioning, so keep that in mind with this year's heat wave.
