It was a super experience. Very smooth and organised. Unbelievable to see Queen Victoria’s home. The weather was so kind to us as we were able to stroll through the gardens and see Princess Diana’s memorial. We were in luck too as we saw King Charles and The Queen Consort land by helicopter in the grounds of Kensington gardens. Priceless!! We then saw him next day in his Bentley driving past us on Cromwell Road, how lucky were we?

A walk through the park is highly recommended. The Palace is outwardly rather unspectacular. You learn a lot about its residents. The exhibitions are changing at the moment (October 2022) there is a photo exhibition. It's a pity that you see very little about/from Diana. She is there only a very small part in the history of the Palace and its occupants. A highlight are the employees. They tell the stories of the house and its residents with a lot of heart and soul.

The tour was great. Just fyi if you use the meeting place link in the app to find out where to meet it takes you to the side (we thought maybe it was a dedicated side entrance for tour takers) but that’s not where you go. Just go right to the front entrance. But it was all well worth the ticket price.
