Describer tours of Kensington Palace are available for the King's Apartments or Victoria: A Royal Childhood. Each tour will take around 1.5 to 2 hours.
We would recommend booking one tour per visit, to allow enough time for a relaxed and rewarding experience in these historic rooms.
Of course, you are welcome to book a tour of a second exhibition for your next visit. Alternatively, become a member and get your next visit to Kensington Palace for free, as well as unlimited adventures at our five other palaces, a 10% discount in our shops and cafés, and exclusive events.
Describer tours are included in palace admission (members go free) and carers are admitted free of charge. Tours must be booked in advance.
To book a Describer tour, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call +44 (0)333 320 6000, giving at least two weeks notice.
