Explore the magnificent set of rooms that make up the King's State Apartments
The King's Staircase
This is the first link to the circuit of rooms making up the King's State Apartments. All the great and good of Georgian London would have climbed up these stairs to visit the king.
The Presence Chamber
This room contains the nearest thing to a throne that you'll see at Kensington today - a gilded armchair that belonged to George II's son, Frederick.
The Privy Chamber
This was one of Queen Caroline's favourite entertaining spaces. See the magnificent ceiling painted by William Kent in 1723 as well as some very impressive tapestries.
The Cupola Room
Explore the most splendidly decorated room in the palace!
The King's Drawing Room
This space is the climax of the whole suite of rooms where courtiers would have come in search of power and patronage.
The Council Chamber
See the sort of court dress that would once have been worn in these state rooms.
Queen Caroline's Closet
Visit this small room that has a history far greater than its size!
The King's Gallery
It was here that William III
played soldiers with his little nephew and it was here that the King caught the chill that led to his death in 1702.
