The Victoria exhibition was quite moving. The orangery for light lunch was a delight. The grounds and the park on a sunny day are unbeatable.

We had been really looking forward to this visit, but what a disappointment. Cut out paper figures, strange decorations, no information on pictures, impossible layout, one keeps having to return the way one has come on two routes. This is unfortunately the worst historical attraction...More

Having visited Kensington palace in it's old format with guided tour of superb displays of court life & royal clothing, given by passionate, knowledgable guide today's Kensington Palace is a real disappointment. Sparse exhibits, poor or no information about exhibits or purpose of rooms.

We visited Kensington Palace for a private event at the Orangery - which was fantastic. We had some time spare so decided to go for something to eat at the palace. The cafe is totally inadequate and disorganised. Very few tables inside as they appear...More

The outside of the palace is not as imposing as you would imagine, but they have recently refurbished the inside and it is lovely. There is an exhibition at the moment on Queen Victoria, which is well worth the visit. There is a smaller room...More

Well done on the Kensington Palace display for Victoria’s Jubilee. The rooms and access were superb and seeing some personal artifacts makes a perfect visit!

I was saddened to see that a building of real historical significance has been transformed into a sort of Disneyland full of modern-day gimmicks and tatty decorations. The exhibits are poor, it's almost as if nothing (apart some paintings) has been saved from the old...More

We asked for our money back. The 'interpretations' by specialists interested only promoting their views of the past totally blinds the visitor to the real attraction of the palace - as a place where real people lived. Totally pointless installations get in the way of...More

Hi there, Not sure as it has never happened to us. But if it was me I would get the booking number on line and ask them to change your time for you. If they can’t I fear you will just have to get in the queue with non... More

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.
