Princess Diana once lived at Kensington Palace, a favorite residence for many of history’s best-known royal figures. The palace has its origins in a Jacobean mansion built in 1605. Redesigned in 1689 to suit the needs of the joint monarchs William and Mary, the building was turned into a monumental palace by the acclaimed architect Christopher Wren. Visit this historic site to take a look at recent decades of royal fashions, explore the grand staircases once climbed by kings, stroll through the manicured gardens, and stand under the 12,000 Swarovski crystals that make up an impressive light fixture at the center of the building. Tickets purchased online allow access to the palace, gardens, and permanent exhibits, including Fashion Rules and Victoria Revealed. Kensington Palace is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, London Edition.

  • If the garden where Lady Di liked to meet is very pretty, like the rest of the park, the place itself is of no real interest. You can learn the history of the place without going there, to avoid, spend 15 euros on another visit.

  • There are several interesting sections in the palace, especially those dedicated to the life of Queen Victoria. He managed to get more into his life, from childhood to death. However I think the tour is not worth the price of the ticket. It may be worth limiting yourself to a visit from the outside, especially since the surrounding gardens make up the most beautiful part of Hyde Park in my parer's parer.

  • As a grown man from America, I love to stand outside Kensington Palace and hope to get a glimpse of any member of the Royal Family. I know it will probably never happen since I only visit for like a few hours, but it's still cool to think about. 5 stars for giving people wholesome daydreams!
  • The exhibits open to the public are wonderful. Lots of history and the employees are full of knowledge- ask them questions because you will learn so much more. As it's connected to gardens and two parks, you can take a lovely stroll to burn off any scones you may have eaten.
