Kensington Palace

Discover the story of Princess Victoria, the young girl destined to be queen, in the rooms where she was born and raised at Kensington Palace.

To celebrate the 200th anniversary of Victoria’s birth, this permanent exhibition explores how an indulged young princess blossomed into the independent and iconic monarch we remember.

The display includes remarkable objects relating to Victoria's early years – including a poignant scrapbook of mementos created by her German governess, Baroness Lehzen, which goes on public display for the first time, and Victoria's doll house. The Jewel Room displays an incredible suite of jewelry, including specially commissioned gems for Queen Victoria and magnificent examples of red carpet accessories as part of the Crown to Couture exhibition. Walk in the footsteps of royalty in the beautiful gardens of Kensington Palace.

The Sunken Garden, including the statue of Diana, Princess of Wales, is open Wednesday–Sunday from 10.00-18.00. Entry is via the Sunken Garden Gate only. The last entry is at 17.45.
