About Kensington Palace

Designed by Sir Christopher Wren, Kensington Palace became a royal residence in 1689. It has hosted countless kings and queens over the centuries and this heritage is reflected in the grandeur of the event spaces. Now the official London residence of none other than Duke and Duchess of Cambridge William and Catherine and they’re children, this is an events space that befits grand affairs and celebrations.

If you have a long guest list, the glass-fronted Pavilion can hold up to 800 guests and is perfect for enjoying the surrounds of the palace from. This purpose-built structure opens up onto the immaculately manicured outdoor spaces, which include the palace’s famous sunken garden. If you’d like to hose a dinner in this space it’s worth noting that the capacity for a sit-down affair is 300 guests, and there’s the option to have a separate drinks area to help segregate your evening into stages.

With so many spaces on offer you could always combine rooms inside the palace itself to create a luxurious event. The King’s Gallery is the longest room in the house and has imposing decor making it impart a grand atmosphere on dinners, while the Queen’s Gallery – with its rich 17th-century interiors and garden views – is the perfect spot for pre-dinner drinks.

If you prefer something a little bit more stripped back, there is also a modern reception space in the clean-lined Hub. This blank canvas space allows you to put your own stamp on things, for an individual look and feel that can be adapted for all kinds of events.

When it comes to décor and catering, Kensington Palace run their events in conjunction with preferred suppliers. Each of these companies are hand-selected for their high-end service and discreet nature – allowing you to relax knowing they’re sure to take care of every little detail.
