Palace Avenue, London, W8 4AQ
Now showing, Open Run
What was once a stuffy and frustrating member of the Historic Royal Palaces to visit is now accessible, lively, intriguing and very, very modern.
Kensington Palace is synonymous with the generations of stylish royal women who have called it their home: where Queen Victoria was born and raised; Queens Mary, Anne and Caroline held court; and the royal style-icons Princess Margaret and Diana, Princess of Wales lived in the 20th century. Nowadays a small section is home to William, Kate and George, but the public galleries are marvellously kept and curated, with exhibitions all year around with a particular focus on fashion and style.
The Victoria Revealed collection includes some of the most iconic personal objects from Queen Victoria's early life, including from her simple white silk wedding gown, the dolls she made, dressed and named when she was little.
Other memorabilia includes a letter written by Victoria as Queen, as well as paintings photography and sculpture by her favourite artists. Be sure to explore the Palace grounds, including the romantic Sunken Gardens for a slice of quiet amidst the bustle of nearby Kensington.
