Kensington Palace

Extended by Sir Christopher Wren to its current palatial proportions, this magnificent Jacobean site was once home to Queen Victoria. The State Apartments have been transformed into the Enchanted Palace. Here, within a magic wonderland, children can follow clues to find the seven princesses of Kensington. Nearby in Kensington Gardens you’ll also find the Diana, Princess of Wales' Memorial Playground which boasts a pirate ship loved by kids.

    Diana: Her Fashion Story

    Until Wednesday 28th February 2018

    A stunning life-in-fashion exhibition showcasing some of the most beautiful (and ill-advised) outfits worn by the late Princess Diana, many of which were designed by world famous couturiers. From the early self-conscious Lady Spencer to the glamorous and confident People's Princess, the exhibits are both breath-taking and evocative and well worth experiencing at first hand.
