Describer tours are available for two routes - either the King's Apartments or Victoria Revealed. 

Each tour will take around 1.5 to 2 hours so we advise on just one Describer tour per visit.

Sadly we are unable to offer tours for the other areas of Kensington Palace at this time due to space constraints. Of course, you are always welcome to book and visit a second time to enjoy the Describer tours in both areas - or why not become a member of Historic Royal Palaces and enjoy unlimited free entry to all five of our palaces for a year plus all the Describer tours they offer!
