Kensington Palace Tours

star-4.5
7 Reviews
Kensington Palace
As the official London home of Britain's favorite royal couple, Prince William and Kate Middleton, along with little Prince George and Princess Charlotte; Kensington Palace's fame rivals that of Buckingham Palace. Will and Kate aren't the only members of the royal family to walk the halls of Kensington Palace, though—King George II, Queen Victoria, Queen Anne, Princess Margaret and Princess Diana have all also called the palace home.

The Basics
While the royal living quarters are off-limits, a large portion of the palace is open to the public, with multiple exhibit spaces plus the renowned Orangery café. Visitors can admire the 16th-century King's Staircase; peek into Queen Mary's State Apartments; learn more about Queen Victoria in the Victoria Revealed exhibition; and explore Queen Caroline's Cabinet of Curiosities, all before strolling the landscaped palace gardens. You can also admire a collection of iconic dresses worn by Princess Diana in the Diana: Her Fashion Story exhibit.

Opt for a priority-access ticket to save time, or book a Royal Palaces Pass that allows entry to three royal London attractions: Buckingham, the Tower of London, and Hampton Court Palace. Some tours to Buckingham Palace also stop by Kensington Palace, while others pair a palace visit with an indulgent afternoon tea experience in the palace gardens.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Admission lines can be long in summer, especially for special exhibitions, so it’s best to book priority entrance tickets in advance.
  • Free Wi-Fi is available on-site.
  • Most areas of the palace are wheelchair accessible, and concession tickets are available.

How to Get to Kensington Palace
Kensington Palace is located at the west end of Hyde Park in central London. The nearest tube stations are Queensway and High Street Kensington, each about a 10-minute walk from the palace.

When to Get There
Kensington Palace is open all year round, but special events are held throughout the year, including fashion exhibits, the open-air Luna Cinema in August, and Queen Caroline's annual garden parties.

Buzz of Trafalgar Square, elegance of St. James's Park, to the glamour of Buckingham Palace, it’s a feast all the way. Broad boulevards, and the vistas long -- the perfect backdrop for the pomp and pageantry of royal occasions. Piccadilly Circus, London Eye, River Thames, Hyde Park, Albert Hall, even Harrods…you’ll forget to look at your phone. We even do 3 UNESCO World Heritage and 2 Tudor Palaces. Themes vary from British Monarchy’s Royal Palaces to Pomp and Ceremony to UK Parliament and Brexit to Winston Churchill’s Darkest Hour in World War Two. Which will it be for you today?
