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.

  • I didn't hate this place it was Princess Diana's anniversary of her death many people attend this day some of us have been coming since 1997 spent 4 hours there met some old friends and new people. Diana is missed still loved and never ever forgotten she's now will are loved ones in heaven. Love Kevin
  • The palace grounds are beautiful. I did not have the opportunity to go inside, but I did see the surrounding gardens and park area, which were a sight to behold all on its own. Definitely worth the visit. My partner and I did afternoon tea here, and that was great. They had different dietary options (including gluten-free and vegan), and that was greatly appreciated. I had the vegan option, and it was good. Highly recommend.
