Kensington Palace is not a traditional heritage experience - our approach is tradition with a twist, and we apply this to the four routes that your ticket includes: Victoria Revealed - an exhibition exploring the life and reign of one of the palace's most famous residents Queen Victoria, in her own words; the King's State Apartments which tell the grand stories of the Hanoverian court; the Queen's State Apartments which has a more modern and theatrical display to tell the story of William and Mary through to George I; and Fashion Rules: Dresses from the collections of HM The Queen, Princess Margaret and Diana, Princess of Wales.
