Kew Palace - Kids go free!
Daily until 25 September 2011
Kew Palace, once home to George III and his family, opens its doors for the 2011 season. The tiny royal palace in the heart of Kew Gardens will welcome visitors coming to discover its secrets and stories and uncover more about Britain’s longest reigning male monarch. Kids get free admission to the palace if accompanied by a paying adult.

Among the many items relating to George and his family on display at the palace we will be showcasing, especially for the 2011 season, an exhibition of caricatures depicting the King and his family in various topical situations of the period.  Among them caricatures from the artist James Gillray who ensured the phenomena of this form of satire was well fed throughout the late 18th century.

Historic Royal Palaces is the independent charity that looks after the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, the Banqueting House, Kensington Palace and Kew Palace.  We help everyone explore the story of how monarchs and people have shaped society, in some of the greatest palaces ever built.

We receive no funding from the Government or the Crown, so we depend on the support of our visitors, members, donors, volunteers and sponsors.

These palaces are owned by The Queen on behalf of the nation, and we manage them for the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport.

We believe in four principles.  Guardianship: giving these palaces a future as long and valuable as their past. Discovery: encouraging people to make links with their own lives and today’s world.  Showmanship: doing everything with panache. Independence: having our own point of view and finding new ways to do our work.                                                                                                                    http://www.hrp.org.uk/      registered charity number 1068852 -ends-
