You don't get to see a lot. The rooms have very little furniture in and the whole visit took less than an hour or so. Princess Diana's dresses are currently on show but not a lot to say other than I didn't realise how skinny she was.

Having been watching Victoria on tv, I was interested to go here on a recent visit to London only to find that the section devoted to Queen Victoria was closed. It was a huge disappointment. I did enjoy the rest of the tour, especially Diana's dresses. The rooms are quite dimly lit which made reading the information that bit more difficult. We spent a lot of time in the gardens and park area on a crisp autumnal day. I will probably go back when the exhibition reopens although it is rather pricey.

A beautiful Palace steeped in history. The audio guide was very helpful as we walked through. Make sure you see the Diana exhibit - such beautiful dresses.

We missed the second floor of the tour as we didnt see the the sign posting for it!
It is quite dark inside (understand why!) but not easy to read the info packs in the rooms
The Diana exhibit is lovely, you need patience to cope with those who gush and/or crowd the show cases, the space that the exhibit in is not really big enough, it must be a nightmare if it is really busy!
We will need to go back to cover what we missed! doh!
