About the Kensington Palace

A working royal palace in the heart of London, it is still the residence of many members of the Royal Family.

However a number of the state rooms and the gardens are open to the public to visit, and they have regular exhibitions.

IMPORTANT - Although venues are reopening, their hours may differ from normal, and most now need prebooking before you visit.
