Kensington Palace has been a royal residence for over 300 years. Originally a private country house, the building was acquired by William III and Mary II in 1689 and was transformed into a royal palace by Christopher Wren. The palace was home to William and Mary, Queen Anne, George I and George II and was the birthplace and childhood home of Princess Victoria (later Queen Victoria).
The Palace has three spaces available to hire: The King's Drawing Room (120 seated), The Red Saloon (80 seated) and The Orangery.
With a capacity of 150, The Orangery provides an enjoyable and memorable venue for summer dining. Situated within its own private grounds in the heart of Kensington Gardens, it combines the privilege of access to a royal palace with a serene rural ambience in the centre of the capital.
