Delive into the world of royalty and follow in their footsteps as you venture to Kensington Palace, the birthplace of Queen Victoria. Why not walk in the footsteps of royalty yourself as you journey through Victoria's re-imagined childhood rooms and the magnificent King's State Apartments and Queen's State Apartments.
Getting there by train couldn't be easier either with 3 mainline stations all within walking distance. They are London Marylebone (22-minute walk), London Paddington (25-minute walk), and London Victoria (40 minutes). London Undergrounds stations will also whisk you there even closer, with Queensway just a few minutes walk away from the Palace.
