Attraction Information

Consider yourself royalty on a day out at Kensington Palace. It’s got everything your little aristocrats could need - exploration trails, ornamental gardens and 12,000 Swarovski crystals!

Wind your way on a family trail through the King’s State Apartments and uncover the human side of Her Majesty Queen Victoria. Stand in the very bedroom in which she awoke to the news that she was to be queen, or experience her childhood as a constrained monarch-to-be in The Room of a Sleeping Princess display.

Royalty isn’t all about glitz and glamour, but a little bit never hurt anyone. Be dazzled by the amazing light installation at the centre of the Palace, made from almost 4 km of electroluminescent wire and containing nearly 12,000 Swarovski crystals! Equally the in-house exhibition, Diana: Her Fashion Story, showcases outfits worn by the princess throughout her lifetime. After viewing classic works in The King’s Gallery, get some fresh air out in the Palace Gardens which are filled with ornamental flowers and an 18th-century stroll down Cradle Walk.

  • Family trails through the Palace
  • Marvel at a stunning light installation
  • Wander around the tranquil Palace Gardens
