Kensington Palace Tours

star-4
87 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.
Address: Kensington Gardens, London W8 4PX, England
Hours: March–Oct 10am–6pm; Nov–Feb 10am–4pm
Admission: €18

Left spellbound by the 2017 blockbuster ‘Darkest Hour’? Repeat the experience offscreen, with our new London tour. The movie bagged 6 nominations for Academy Awards and an Oscar for Best Actor Oldman. Our latest adaption will have you waxing eloquent too.

Your Private Driver Guide, an enthusiastic war historian, storms you through the violence of ‘The Blitz’. Feel the jitters as you visualise Nazi Germany threatening Western Europe and Great Britain’s very existence. Follow in the footprints of Winston Churchill and trace the turn of events from that unsettling era at Westminster and Whitehall. For an apt closure to a war-themed tour, pick Churchill War Rooms, Imperial War Museum or Warship HMS Belfast.

Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens audio tour: a walk through London's royal parks

Explore two of London's most beautiful and famous Royal Parks with me. As a Londoner, I’ve grown up visiting Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens and I know all they have to offer, from their best spots to little-known vistas. The parks are filled with stories and secrets that most visitors miss, but if you take this self guided audio tour, you won’t be one of them. Some of the tour’s highlights include: • Speakers’ Corner where you can find the finest free show in London. • The story of the creation of the Royal Parks. How did we end up with over 600 acres of parkland in an area where land prices are through the roof? • The Serpentine Lake where you can relax and enjoy the swans • Memorials dedicated to Diana, Princess of Wales, including a fountain and playground • How to spot the beautiful birds around Kensington Gardens • A grand view of Kensington Palace • A 900-year-old oak tree and the little elves that hide within it.
