It has fine staircases, paintings and statues, beautiful floors and ceilings but empty rooms except for a couple of bedrooms.
The exhibition of some of Princess Diana's dresses was very good, most of them have been seen in magazines or on the TV but it was nice to see them up close and real.
The day had been arranged with some American friends that I met when I did my Everest trek. They have visited London before and seen many of the visitor attractions but hadn't been to Kensington Palace and neither had I. They were happy with it though.
It wasn't a complete disappointment, we strolled through Kensington Park and the gorgeous gardens and we had a good lunch. We wanted to to the Orangery restaurant which looks beautifully posh and serene, but it was full so we went to the courtyard cafe which had a good selection of sandwiches, salads and scrumptious cakes.
10 out of 10 for a great day with lovely friends
