A visit to Kensington Palace is often a must see visit when travelling to London (it was for us anyway)! I wish we were heading off shortly as I would love to see the Enchanted Palace Exhibition.
What is the Enchanted Palace Exhibition?
Its a unique tour through the state apartments which have been “enchanted”, following a map to reveal the stories behind seven princesses who once lived there (Including Princess Margaret and Diana, Princess of Wales). My daughter and I would love to have a wander through and admire some of the gowns displayed throughout and I guess the boys would enjoy the light show too! Entertainers around the exhibition will help you solve the clues to work out which princesses reside in each bedroom. There are also some kids craft activities, which can be fun for a bit of sit down entertainment.
Plan your visit though, due to the current renovations only the State Apartments remain open. This exhibition finishes 3rd of January. The Palace will then close its doors before its grand reopening March 26, 2012.
Good for younger children?
Note, there is stroller access, but no lifts and a lot of stairs. Under 5’s are free.
