A lovely afternoon visiting the royal apartments in Kensington palace plus the fashion exhibition in the orangery. Wonderful paintings in the rooms of the apartments and a useful guide book in each room. Staff very helpful and pleasant. Cafe and toilets both clean and tidy. Tables cleaned regularly. Food was reasonably priced for London and decaffinated tea available- yes!

The fashion exhibition , which was the original reason for going, was less immersive and smaller than expected although the short videos of the designers were excellent.

Felt a little underwhelmed by the inside of the palace. Very little furniture on display and it was obvious that some of the rooms that are in the route were never really occupied by the royal families that had lived there and were in fact previously offices.
Some of the rooms contained pictures but there were no information provided to explain who or what. It felt like the pieces of furniture had been found in some royal basement and used just to fill an odd corner of the rooms with nothing really authentic.
The exhibition was also a disappointment as aside from Princess Diana’s wedding dress and a dress worn by the queen mother and a couple of hand written notes there was very little else to see.
That said, we are glad we visited, it’s the first royal palace we have ever visited. Lovely to walk round the gardens and plenty of places to stop off and sit and relax. Not overly overpriced. One criticism is that the queue to get in was very long and this may be avoided if more than one person was on the door checking tickets and admitting visitors in.

Kensington Palace ケンジントン宮殿 Located in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea in London, Kensington Palace is the official residence of the Dukes and Duchesses of Cambridge, Gloucester, and Kent. The state and ceremonials rooms are open to the public and managed by the Historic Royal Palaces, an independent charity that does not receive taxpayer funds. The private living areas and offices of the Royal family members are funded, managed and maintained by the Royal Household. The public area of the palace displays paintings and other objects from the Royal Collection. Kensington Gardens, once part of the private gardens of the Palace are part of the Royal Parks of London and are westerly adjacent to Hyde Park. The rooms and gardens are well worth seeing. Visited late fall 2019.

Everything considered you know the gardens are big, and you are also pleased with what you see... For 15-20 min. If you don't intend to picnic, just avoid. A big stretch of grass and a short walk under the trees and you are done. You cannot get to the flowers because that is extra. You cannot approach the lake because the last 2 m of grass before it are for the bees (I understand, wildlife is important, just lower the price). You cannot get on the island in the middle of the lake because is protected (see wildlife comment above). There is more to see and picnic on in Hyde Park and it is free. 16£ for grass, feels like 5£ would have been more than enough and I would have gladly paid that much.

We had a lovely time here today visiting the apartments of the young Queen Victoria, George II and Queen Caroline and Queen Mary. All rooms are full of interest with hundreds of paintings and lots of interesting artefacts. Each room is carefully captioned. There were lots of people visiting but it was not uncomfortable. The one way system is excellent. You are directed lastly to the L'Orangerie where there is an exhibition of royal couture, including the beautifully displayed dress of Princess Diana. At the end we visited the cafe for a coffee and there is a lovely outside area to enjoy this. The gardens are superb and manicured exquisitely. It was a great 3 hours and money well spent. PS If you are a National Art Fund member you get in free but cannot book in advance. You have to visit the ticket office when you get there and they fit you in with the next available time slot. Be prepared to queue to get in, even if you have tickets.

We visited as we had membership of Historic Royal Palaces and therefore could go for free. Given our disappointment at the visit, at least we can't say that we had paid a fortune for the experience.
There was a long queue to get in, even with a timed entry system. There were two people checking everyone's bags; this was the reason for the wait.
There are too many people allowed in at once. Many of the rooms are too small and we frequently found ourselves standing around with 15-20 people, especially in Queen Victoria's apartments. All it takes is for one or two people to stand in a doorway to act as blockers, especially when people are allowed to visit in such numbers. All the windows are closed and blinds down; unnecessarily dingy. But my main feeling is that we didn't feel safe being packed with so many people. Fewer people should have been permitted entry at a time, ventilation should be improved and people should be encouraged not to block or stand around for too long. I've fed back directly.

Overall a very enjoyable visit. Especially enjoyed the Victoria: A Royal Childhood display & rooms which I thought was very interesting and immersive, would highly recommend. On the other hand, I was not too impressed by the fashion exhibition as it did feel as there were only a few random dresses there, however it was not the reason I visited so overall it was satisfactory. Staff are very friendly and happy to share interesting facts and stories about the palace and the royals.

With all the options to available to a tourist in London, a visit to Kensington Palace should be very near the bottom of very long list. I can't recall the last time I paid admission to a site in or around London and felt ripped off, but this was definitely one. There so many great museums, historic sites, and galleries in London (many of which charge no admission), that this visit was a big let down. We've visited all of the other Historic Royal Palaces around London and found the admission and time well spent on a visit (everyone should make a visit to the Tower of London, Hampton Court, and Windsor Palace st least once). Kensington was the opposite. The entry/ticket entrance was poorly set up requiring everyone with pre-purchased passes to wait in the same line as paying guests to be scanned at the till. This allowed the staff to put a full-press on up-sells to annual passes while in line. Once in and having paid full fare, they two brief apartment tours (the Victoria and Georgian Kings apartments), with limited information or details. Within 40 minutes, we had visited all rooms and read all information. At half of the price, Kensington Palace is still a waste of money. Visit one of the real grand palaces (or at least one that has space that is accessible to it's guests).

I arrived ten minutes earlier than my booked time but was allowed straight through.

Every single member of staff was absolutely superb: throughly knowledgeable, friendly and professional. The 'explainers' were great doing their job. The actors in role brought the whole experience to life.

Overall, I feel it was excellent value for money and would highly recommend as part of anyone's visit to London. I will definitely be bringing friends and family here.

Very disappointing. Just not worth it. Cost nearly £50 for 2 of us to go in - Good system of people going in every 30 mins. Easy when there is very little to see. Even the exhibition with Diana wedding dress - that was it! The gardens and park are fabulous though and really are enjoyable.
