    While this palace may be somewhat smaller than others, it certainly does not lack in historical significance or charm. Now serving as a museum, it provides fascinating insights into various aspects of history and culture. During my visit, there was a captivating exhibition on fashion, illustrating the evolution and impact of style through the ages. Additionally, the palace hosts a second museum dedicated to the childhood of Britain's royal children. It was particularly enlightening to delve into Queen Victoria's early life, providing a rare glimpse into the formative years of this iconic monarch. What left an indelible impression was the charming small theatre, a testament to the palace's rich cultural history. This feature is an absolute must-see. Please note that entry to the palace requires a ticket. It's also worth mentioning that if you arrive later than the scheduled time, there might be a lengthy wait. However, the wealth of history and beauty housed within its walls makes the wait worthwhile. This palace is more than a destination; it's a journey into the past.

    Great place to visit especially if you are a historic fan. The Palace has lots of stuff to make our eyes explore the royal life. Great surroundings.. there is a small pond with lots of swans and birds. Children will have fun time. This is located near a very big park and great for families and friends weekend gatherings.

    Never been before and the weather helped an enjoyable day. The self lead audio tour was insightful and the venue not overly crowded. Gift shop had some lovely items and the cafe ample indoor/outdoor seating. The Pavilion restaurant looked inviting

    This is the Palace of the "Young Royals" one of many Royal residence throughout the UK. It was a short walk about 5-6 minutes from the Hilton at Hyde Park where we spent almost a week. Also a memorial garden to Princess Diana. We spent about two hours touring at a leisure pace. They had an exhibit "Life Through a Royal Lens" which had a fascinating collection of photos of the royal family many candid and family shots. It was about $25pp for entry. We had a tight schedule, we had a reservation to do "High tea at the Palace" it starts at 34£ pp. Advance reservations recommended.

    Buy tickets online ahead of time for a scheduled hour! It was a nice visit and not too crowded due to the timed slot setup. We went at 12pm and it seemed like a perfect time. It was beautiful outside, many people running and relaxing in the park, sunny with tons of birds. Absolutely beautiful.
