Kensington Palace

Square Meal Review of Kensington Palace ?

Set in tranquil Kensington Gardens, Kensington Palace first became a royal residence in 1689. It was designed by Sir Christopher Wren, who was commissioned by William and Mary to create a retreat from Whitehall, and has hosted the courts of countless kings and queens over the centuries. This heritage is reflected in the grandeur of its event spaces, from the bright Orangery, which combines with a marquee to hold up to 1,000 guests, to the Queen’s Gallery with its rich 17th-century interiors and secluded Sunken Garden that holds 80 for pre-dinner drinks. There is also modern reception space for up to 400 guests in the clean-lined Hub on the ground floor, completed in 2012.
