I especially enjoyed the “trial audio”area. It would be nice to have been told in advance to bring headphones. Also, they need more information under some of the paintings, ex. who it is, what year, etc. , as there were many with no information. Diana’s wedding dress was spectacular! It was a wonderful display!

Fascinating Royal history from Stuart & Georgian times right up to the current day. Great to see Princes Diana's wedding dress also. In architecturally it is fascinating and the wardens/onsite staff are extremely knowledgeable, helpful and love to talk about the quirks and history that the audio's miss out on. Ive lived in London, on & off for my whole life and having been to almost every royal palace this year, plus other stately home, KP was by far the most enjoyable couple of hours.

I have been coming to London all my life as my mother was born there. Kensington Palace is one of the very few landmarks in London that I haven’t visited. It is a lovely Palace and as an admirer of Diana, Princess of Wales, I was so pleased to see that beautiful Wedding dress in all it’s magnificence. Thank you
