Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely day out! Each year my sister and I get together to celebrate our Mums' birthday though she's no longer with us. It would be something she'd enjoy, especially Diana's and Victoria's dresses (which we did too!). Great value, and even the weather was beautiful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A day at Kensington Palace and gardens Went with my Sister, expected to queue but we were lucky. Cafe reasonably priced. Saw Princess Anne too leaving the grounds in a helicopter. Good value.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing I found the Diana exhibition somewhat disappointing. There were fewer dresses than I expected, and only a few of the "famous" ones. I found the displays difficult to see with the outside lights reflecting off the glass cabinets therefore on some of the darker dresses, the structure and detail could not be seen. The detail on the back of the dresses could not be seen, only the front. Why not rotate some of these dresses? The rest of the Palace was rather predictable. I liked the fact that the Queens and female consorts were frequently the focus, but even more could have been made of this throughout the palace.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Having bought the tickets for a suprise for my friends birthday she loved it. Worth the wait to see Diana's collection. Although not all her dresses where on display her most famous where. The palace it's self was a delight to see. The only thing that's not too good is the way out through the cafe. Which if very busy and not enough room to walk through. It was a very busy day when we went so it's bound to be busy. Apart from that it was fantastic.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Kensington Palace We bought tickets mainly for the Diana dress collection. If it wasn't for that I wouldn't recommend paying to go round the Palace. You can access the grounds and cafe for free.
