Kensington Palace Garden History Tours

Follow one of our volunteers on an award-winning* walking tour of the garden surrounding Kensington Palace and explore the diverse history and development of the gardens. These tours will bring a host of intriguing and surprising stories of the gardens to life; who kept wild animals in the grounds? Who created the magnificent statue of Queen Victoria? And who made the iconic golden gates? These FREE tours will allow you to get up close and personal to the magnificent statue of Queen Victoria, admire the iconic Gold Gates and pause and reflect by the enchanting Sunken Garden, the planting of which takes inspiration from the dresses of Diana, Princess of Wales.

Meeting Point: The Queen Victoria Statue, Broad Walk, Kensington Gardens (opposite Kensington Palace and the Round Pond)
