London's Kensington Palace has been a royal home for over 300 years, and parts of the palace still remain a private residence for members of the Royal Family today. Following a major renovation project, the palace now unveils many secret stories of past royal figures, painting Kensington Palace as the setting for many noteworthy events and dramas in royal history. Make your way through the spectacular King’s and Queen’s State Apartments, adorned with paintings from the Royal Collection, and stroll through the Kensington Palace Gardens at your leisure.

Explore the permanent exhibition, ‘Victoria Revealed,’ which is set within the rooms where Victoria grew up. Queen Victoria was born in the palace, and it was here that she learned she had become queen at just 18 years of age. She also held her first Privy Council meeting in Kensington Palace’s Red Saloon. Inspired by her own journals and featuring displays of personal objects, ‘Victoria Revealed’ gives an intimate account of Queen Victoria, exploring her life and reign through her own words.

We enjoyed our walk through Kensington Palace. After high tea, it was enjoyable. We learned a lot about Queen Victoria. And it was a lovely day to be out and about.

Wonderful tour of the Palace and the history. On the second floor an exhibit of Queen Victoria and her times. Very beautiful and personal story of an amazing Queen during the changes going on in the world and the UK.

What a wonderful experience. I went in not knowing what to expect and the tour was far better than anticipated. Buying the ticket in advance made the entry process a bit faster, but not significantly.
This is a must see for anyone travelling to London.

Purchased my tickets at a nice discount (they will send you a coupon) with Viator. I printed the voucher but forgot it at the palace, but they still accepted my booking because I was able to email my confirmation to them! Everyone was super nice and the exhibit of Queen Victoria was outstanding. The gardens around the palace were so beautiful! The whole experience from booking to leaving was excellent! This tour is highly recommended!

The rooms and grounds of Kensington Palace were gorgeous. Really enjoyed the exhibits for Queen Victoria' 200th Birthday.

Favourite place was the wing describing Queen Victoria and her great love for Albert. A beautiful place and above all felt like a place where a family was raised with love. Beautiful sunken gardens. No guide for this tour. Easy to navigate

Great venue, gardens and monarchy history tucked on the edge of Hyde Park. Still have to cue to trade in Viator/trip advisor advance purchase tickets so no real time savings.

Great place

Lovely self guided tour. If you’re a fan of the Masterpiece show “Victoria “, it’s an extra helpful place to visit. Her doll house, toys, bed, makes history come alive. A bit warm in the house! A groundskeeper was so helpful in giving more history, directions and great outgoing personality. Mr. Keith Richards, no not the stoned one, a real live person with stories to tell. The sunken garden was a true treasure.

Had difficulty finding the location where to switch out voucher for tickets. The address listed on the voucher/site directed us to a guard shack at the very end of the street. Turns out, we switched the vouchers at the actual entrance. Wasted a lot of time. Also, a docent to take us through and elaborate on exhibits would have been nice.
