Went with my daughter and a friend. We parked in a car park right next to the place under a hotel for £40 for the day, well worth it. We went to see the Diana exhibition but enjoyed the palace as well. The exhibition was really interesting with lots of information about Diana's life. I was amazed how much I remembered about her and how many memories of my own life it brought back. Some parts were quite sad as you remember what a lovely lady she was. even so I really enjoyed the visit. We had coffee and cake in the coffee shop, which even had gluten free cake.

Arrived about 10am and had no trouble with line ups etc. Cost was 19.00GBP for one adult which forme seemed reasonable. It wont take you too long to go through, probably 1.5 - 2 hours tops. The Diana exhibit was on and included in the ticket and although I confess I was not too fussed about it, once I entered and begun to read about her choices of dress etc, I found the whole exhibition to be most enlightening.

No it is not the biggest and the best but if you accept it for what it is I am sure you will enjoy it.

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.
