Visited upon opening and went to the Diana: Fashion Exhibition first then on to the King and Queen’s apartments followed by Victoria Revealed. Very interesting and lots to see. Big gift shop and a cafe also. Recommend!

By all means are Diana’s dresses worth the steep entry price of 20 pounds each. A great bit of history here and be sure to catch a tour of the Victoria exhibit.

I went July 2018 at 3 pm, and the queue was very short (maybe 10 couples or families). There are fans but no air conditioning, so keep that in mind with this year's heat wave.
