Kensington Palace :: Visitors' Map of London :: A-Z Maps

Kensington Palace

Largely the work of Christopher Wren for William III who bought what was then Nottingham House in 1689; later additions being made for George I by William Kent. Queen Victoria was born here in 1819 and her statue by daughter Princess Louise stands outside in the beautiful Kensington Gardens, once the Palace's private parkland.

The Palace is still a Royal Residence and was the London home of Diana, Princess of Wales, until her untimely death in 1997.

The Palace's interiors have been restored to reflect their former grandeur. Within the State Apartments interesting exhibitions include 'Victoria Revealed', telling the story of Queen Victoria's life and long reign, including many personal objects, letters and artworks.
