Enjoy the majestic, yet undeniable warmth that is the Kensington Palace. Located in the beautiful Kensington Gardens in the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea, Kensington Palace is one landmark that is easily enjoyed by the entire family.
A British royal residence since the 17th century, Kensington Palace has hosted a slew of true royals including Queen Victoria, Princess Diana and most recently The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge aka Will & Kate!
The palace, which has undergone £12 million worth of renovations, features newly restored gardens, café, shop and terraces. The palace also boasts a new exhibit- Victoria Revealed- which highlights the personal side of the great queen of England. Exhibits feature personal diary accounts, jewelry designed by her late husband Prince Albert, and even a teething ring from one of her nine children.
Kensington Palace, besides being known as a glorious home to some of England’s luckiest royals, is known for its wonderful location. Located in the middle of the expansive Kensington Gardens, the palace is also down the street from Kensington Palace Gardens Rd, home to some of the most beautiful (and expensive!) homes in England. Be sure to also take in the beauty of Kensington Gardens, with features like the Italian garden which hosts four fountains and a multitude of statues, it’s a site that can’t be missed.
