Tickets including Royal Style in the Making

To enable us to meet social distancing guidelines, we have limited the number of visitors on site at any one time. Please pre-book your ticket and arrival time slot online before you visit. You will not be allowed to enter the palace without a ticket. The duration of your visit is not restricted in any way. Under 5's go free and do not need a ticket.

National Art Fund Pass holders are entitled to free entry to both the palace and Royal Style in the Making exhibition by presenting a valid Art Fund Pass on the day of their visit. We are not able to pre-book Art Fund members through the website but will admit them on the first available time slot when they visit, and they will not be separated from the rest of their party if they are visiting with people who have pre-booked tickets.

Your Kensington Palace admission ticket includes access to all public areas of the palace and gardens and takes you on our one way route through the palace to:

  • Victoria: A Royal Childhood
  • The King's State Apartments
  • The Queens State Apartments
  • finishing in our new exhibition 'Royal Style in the Making' (opening 3 June)

Tickets for dates up to 30th September are available to book now. Tickets for October onwards will be released later in the year.
