This red-brick Jacobean mansion was remodelled in 1689 and turned into the Monarch’s residence up to this day.

Since the seventeenth century, Kensington Palace has been home to several generations of the British Royal Family, from King Willian III to Queen Victoria and Princess Diana.

Kensington Palace and St Paul’s Cathedral were both designed by Christopher Wren.

Visiting the chateau 

The Palace’s visitors will be able to satisfy their curiosity walking through the Royal Family’s old luxurious private rooms. The mansion’s perfectly-well conserved rooms maintain the palace’s history disclosed through the exhibition of jewels, dresses, tapestries, letters and other objects that are very well kept. 

The Palace, which has been recently renovated, presently includes a new exhibition on Queen Victoria and a small section on Princess Diana of Wales. The Palace’s gardens are a rich oasis of tranquillity and in the Orangery it is possible to enjoy a cup of steaming English tea with delicious cupcakes.
