Kensington Palace

Visit this charming and much loved royal Palace and gardens, birthplace of Queen Victoria and home to Diana, Princess of Wales.

Celebrate the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, in this major new dress exhibition at Kensington Palace.

Trace the evolution of the Princess's style, from the demure, romantic outfits of her first public appearances, to the glamour, elegance and confidence of her later life.

Don't miss an extraordinary collection of garments, including Victor Edelstein's iconic ink blue velvet gown, famously worn at the White House when the Princess danced with John Travolta.

New discoveries and original designs

The Princess's relationship with her favourite designers is explored through a display of original fashion sketches created for her during the design process.

In addition, a recently discovered blue tartan Emanuel suit will go on display to the public for the first time. This suit was worn by Diana on an official visit to Venice in the 1980s.

The garden is terraced with paving and ornamental flower beds, surrounding an ornamental pond with fountains formed from reused 18th century water cisterns retrieved from the palace. Today, the garden continues the tradition of rotational flower displays in the spring and summer. Vibrant colours and exotic planting are on display from April to October when the garden is looking its best.

As a tourist, there are so many museums and gallery's to visit in London, many of which are free to enter - V&A, Science Museum, Portrait Galley, Imperial War Museum, British Museum, Tate Modern, etc. Beautiful gardens and parks to explore.
