Relaxing walk in the Kensington park. Not so much to see in the palace. Liked the part dedicated to queen Victoria. It helps to better understand the person.

Nice to walk around for 1 hour, traditional luxury palace! Historically known. At coffee shop, try the Delicious Fresh Grapes & Sparkling Lemonade! Take a rest after 1 hour standing & walking tour.

This is not such an impressive palace as Tower of London but still worth a visit. Home of Prince William. Queen Victoria was raised here and thus expect a really interesting exhibition on her life.

Plan to attend the free 10-minute talk about Princess Diana. The volunteer is very passionate about Lady Di. The staff at the gift shop is also very friendly and knowledgable about their items.
