My second visit to Kensington Palace. They changed a few things since the last time I was there. They now have a fantastic full - on tour (for a part of the palace - its very well done) and have converted the original orangery and guards rooms for the exhibitions, gift shop and tea room. The gardens are lovely- don't miss them! Buy your tickets ahead and skip the entry line. You must let them know you already have your tickets - they do not yet have a dual line system to handle this. I stayed near by within walking distance, and would walk to the tea room (small, simple cafe style) for lunch as the palace sits at end of Hyde Park. It can get crowded mid to late afternoon but on nice days.

We took the guided tour which took about 45 mins and had the privilege to view the Queen's box, her holding room, her entrance stairs and her preferred arm chair. We were also fortunate that a rehearsal was in progress and we got to watch the orchestra and large organ in action, and we totally enjoyed the amazing accoustics in the hall. I was very amazed at the many many events that have been held there with very different staging setup - you can see many many photos on the walls and the guide highlights some major and important events during our tour. Due to time constraint we couldn't book a show during this trip but we would definitely do that in our next trip!
