Kensington Palace, London
Perhaps considered to be the London palace with the best surroundings, Kensington Palace is situated right on the edge of Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park, offering stunning views and peaceful surroundings. This was once home to a number of monarchs and royal relatives, from William and Mary, Queen Victoria and Princess Margaret to Diana, Princess of Wales. And it is Diana that is closely connected to the palace, as the Diana Playground and Memorial Fountain are located in the gardens. Kensington Palace was acquired by joint monarchs William and Mary in 1689 and since then it has been greatly altered and extended. However, you can still see Queen Victoria's bedroom, where she was first told that she was queen. The King's Gallery is also the largest and longest of the state apartments at the palace and has a number of items from the Royal Collection. Fashionistas can also take a look here at the Royal Ceremonial Dress Collection, where a number of gowns worn by past princesses and the Queen are on display.
