London 118 – Kensington Palace

Kensington Palace is famous for being the official London residence of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, i.e. Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton. Since out London Pass covered the entrance ticket to this place (normal ticket price is £16.50), we made this our last stop for our 3-days London Pass. It was a 10-15 minutes stroll from High Street Kensington Tue Station through the Kensington Park. The weather was lovely when we were there in October so it was an easy walk to the palace. The State Rooms are open to the public and managed by the independent charity Historic Royal Palaces, a nonprofit organization. We went to the Fashion Rules section (dresses wore by the royal family), The Queen’s State Apartment and the highlight of our visit, the King’s State Apartment.
The King’s State Apartment was absolutely magnificent and I loved the Cupola Room that filled with chandeliers and the King’s Gallery that filled with artworks the most. It was an eye-opening experience to be able to see the old kings’ living spaces so up close and personal. I’d recommend you to see beautiful palace for yourself, but before that perhaps just imagine the place with my pictures below…
