We wanted to see the Fashion Rules exhibit. It wasn't very extensive, but it was nice to see. We enjoyed touring the castle.

I'm limited in walking and found the staff extremely helpful.
All in all a very worthwhile trip.

Highly recommended, if you enjoy the history of the royals and want to see a part of the palace, you will enjoy this excursion and you do it at your own pace. Some of the fashions worn by the present Queen Elizabeth, Princess Diana and Princess Margaret are on display and can be seen during your time here. Very enjoyable!!

Good day out. You can visit 3 royal saloons and the gardens. Also see royal dresses from the Queen, Princess Margaret and Princess Diana. There is a coffee shop or you can have afternoon tea at the pavilion which looks amazing. Tickets were the best price I could find and with queue jumper included.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Kensington Palace was a total bucket list dream come true for me so I had to give it five stars although of the two, Buckingham Palace was obviously more grand. I really liked the exhibits on Queen Victoria and fashion and I actually learned quite a bit in my excitement. I'm not sure the skip the line ticket saved me much time but it was nice to have just in case.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

We dearly loved Kensington Palace. We're Princess Diana fans so we wouldn't have missed this for any thing. Also, it is so beautiful. Well worth the price of the tour. You won't want to miss this one. We also loved the gift shop. We were able to get several beautiful things to bring home that I will treasure for a long time. Prices were a little high but you would expect that, after all, it's a tourist attraction.
