This was the last home of Princess Diana. The Palace was not open for us the day we were there. The gardens are beautiful. The palace itself has a bittersweet tone since Diana lived there and it was the last home she had and now...More

The Kensington Palace experience did start off disappointing as we turned up to buy tickets at the Palace, big mistake. Waited in a queue, while a priority queue moved at the same rate as people arrived, took about 45 minutes to get in when there...More

There are very contradicting reviews on here, some of which are excellent, others not so. I am a Londoner and go to many exhibitions. Having visited the Queen's Exhibition of her dresses at Buckingham Palace last year, I was hoping for something very similar, BUT...More

Kensington Palace was a dissappointment. There was very few rooms to go through and nothing for furnishings in the rooms. The Princess Diana exhibit made it worth our time going. If you are limited on time in London I would skip going here.

It is as it's located on the ground floor. I would question the width of some of the pathways which may be slightly narrow. I was walking holding my husband's hand and do remember having to let go and adopt single file from... More

Hi I dont know if you can - but there are only 16 dresses and really not worth seeing in my opinion
