A Right Royal Occasion - Happy 200th Queen Victoria

There's something quite special about Kensington Palace. Built in 1605 it became the royal home for William & Mary in 1689 and has since been home to a number of members of the Royal family, including most recently the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

On 24th May 1819, Princess Victoria was born in Kensington Palace, an infant who would one day rule over the largest empire the world had ever known.

Victoria: A Royal Childhood - Within the permanent representation of Victoria’s rooms at the palace, you will explore the princess’s education through a display of remarkable objects relating to her early years, including a poignant scrapbook of mementos created by her governess, Baroness Lehzen. The exhibits reveal the world of the lively and creative princess and delve into her family life, friendships and bitter struggles during her upbringing under the strict “Kensington System”.

Why not follow up your visit with a superb afternoon tea served in the Pavilion overlooking the grounds the Palace and Diana’s sunken garden.
