    I was truly excited to visit the Kensington palace and booked in advance. I definitely recommend booking in the morning as it’s easy and quick to enter and no long lines. Staff were extremely friendly. It wasn’t crowded for the 10:30am slot so i was able to enjoy lots of it while it was a bit empty. However, for $31 I expected more about the history of the palace and Princess Diana and so on. The couture was gorgeous and I was able to see dresses that were worn by Met gala guests which was incredible. However, it’s not something that I would add to my list if your only in London for a short amount of time.

    I visited with a friend in September for the Crown to Couture exhibit. We had timed entry, but it was very busy and a bit chaotic getting in. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The exhibit was excellent and well worth the money. It was busy and there was lots of crowds, but it wasn't too much of a problem. The cafe and gardens were very nice and there was a nice outdoor area next to the cafe and we enjoyed a pims in the sunshine.

    Took a tour of inside. Worth it! Make sure you ask the workers in each area for some interesting facts about the specific room/area! I garnered so many tidbits not specifically stated in brochures or online. Book your tickets in advance and allow time to soak in the history and feelings that surround this magnificent building and grounds.

    Kensington Palace has been the residence of the royal family since the seventeenth century. Charles and Diana lived there. It is now the home of Prince William and Princess Kate. A yew fence has been planted around the property, which allows for a bit more privacy. When my wife and I were here in 2000, we were able to see the gardens and pond up close and it was a wonderful experience. Now there is much less to see and visit.

    Very nice place to visit with the family. You'll spend about an hour walking through the palace and then probably another hour at the gardens. I wish there was more historical information about the palace during the tour but it mostly highlights newer fashion. The tour is self paced. When queuing, there are umbrellas to use while in the sun. The gardens are beautiful and a huge pond. Lots of people walking around.
