Kensington Palace

Kensington Palace has been a royal residence since King William III and Mary II renovated the existing house and moved there in 1689. Princesses continue to live there today, the most famous of recent times being Princess Diana. Queen Victoria was born and lived here until she ascended the throne and moved to Buckingham Palace in 1837.

Things to see in palace include Queen Victoria's bedroom, the imposing King's Staircase, the art in the King's Gallery, and the tranquil Sunken Garden. Also interesting is the Royal Dress Collection, including some of Princess Diana's famous frocks.

Practical Info

Kensington Palace is within Hyde Park and is very easy to get to. The closest tube station is Queensway. Currently the palace is being re-presented as the Enchanted Palace, bringing together history and cutting edge contemporary fashion and theatre. Expect Vivienne Westwood next to Queen Victoria.
