    Connects to Hyde park. Not really worth the money but if you have a London pass & is willing to visit any places nearby, it's not a bad deal

    This is not such an impressive palace as Tower of London but still worth a visit. Home of Prince William. Queen Victoria was raised here and thus expect a really interesting exhibition on her life.

    The new Kensington Palace is very disappointing, stripping it of any 'secret look into the lives' and replaced it with cheap looking, 100% fabricated for tourists styled and slightly tacky exhibits.
