A unique insight into how King George III and his family lived, especially the upper floors that have had little restoration. Our visit was made all the more memorable by a young guide, in period costume, who demonstrated a remarkable knowledge and insight of the...More

An amazing place to visit. The gardens are so vast you see something different every time you visit. Even better now that the Temperate House has re opened and I love The Orangery for lunch.

What a delightful place to visit and gain knowledge of yester years. The volunteers are knowledgeable and helpful and there is a lift for those needing a little help.

This is a very nice place to visit in Kew Botanical Gardens. You can visit it with the Kew Botanical Gardens ticket, don't need to purchase another one. Very nice place and some rooms also have an eerie feel.

Visited Kew palace today. Not a grand palace, more of a house. The layout of the house, information available, rich history make this a worthwhile visit. The staff is very helpful. I researched the history of the house prior to visiting, which was helpful.

Well for free it has to be! OK there's a donation box and an overpriced guide book, but the determined miser needn't pay a bean. So, it's a nice house - I'd be very happy to live there, the rooms are well proportioned and it's...More
