Kensington Palace is one of the only palaces that have a portion open for viewing year round. Some portions are underwhelming but the end exhibit of Diana’s clothing is great.

Superb day out - fabulous cafe, lovely cakes, knowledgeable guides and fascinating exhibitions. There is work being carried out at the palace, but it does not detract from the amazing experience.

You could do but when we went the area where the dresses were was very congested but it should be possible on a quiet day.
