This is the iconic Kensington Palace, perfect for unique London venue with a regal twist.
Surrounded by parkland, Kensington Palace along with the Royal Parks' gardens and ponds offers a retreat from the city. For almost 400 years it has been home to some of England’s most popular Royals from Diana, to Queen Victoria. The exquisite interiors of Kensington Palace reflect its regal heritage as well as its stylish residents and artists. With 8 distinctive and versatile spaces, the Palace is perfect for lots of events from garden drinks to recitals and private tours.
Guests have the choice of event spaces both inside the Palace and also the brand new event space this year: The Kensington Palace Pavilion. Inside the palace, the King’s State Apartments which include the Cupola Room, King’s Gallery and King’s Drawing room provide a majestic backdrop to any event.
Guests can walk in the footsteps of royalty ascending the King’s stairs before entering the opulently decorated apartments by William Kent. Perfect for drinks receptions or exquisite dining, the Georgian apartments are perfect for sumptuous celebrations. When the weather is fine, drinks receptions can take place around the stunning sunken garden and cradle walk taking in the beautiful façade of the palace and the Kensington Gardens.
For larger numbers, the Kensington Palace Pavilion is an exciting and brand new event space in the heart of Kensington Palace Grounds. The Pavilion is versatile allowing for large receptions of up to 500 standing or 350 seated. It is a neutral, blank canvas venue with a built-in truss and production capabilities via approved suppliers. This makes it a great space for large celebrations, awards dinners and even fashion shows. The structure is purpose-built whilst the Kensington Palace orangery is conserved until 2021 and allows for daytime as well as evening hire.
