Kensington Palace

CL Discovered by CarrieLiken




The palace, birthplace of Queen Victoria, is one of the Royal Residences in London. Visitors can wander the beautiful public gardens or pay their respects at the Princess Diana Memorial Fountain. It is now the home of Prince William and Kate.

Insider Tip

Have a casual afternoon tea on site at The Orangery outside in the flower gardens. Often you'll find temporary fashion exhibitions here as well.
