Included in palace admission

In Spring and Summer 2017, the historic Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace will be temporarily transformed into a White Garden.

Spring planting will include an elegant palette of tulips and scented narcisii through a carpet of 'forget me nots'. In the summer, pots of classic English white roses will surround the reflective pool in the centre of the garden and the planting will become more exuberant, with glowing ornamental grasses weaving through Cosmos daisies and billows of graceful Gaura.

White Garden Planting List

Come face to face with mysterious mythical beasts, storm the battlements and discover the secret grotto in the Magic Garden.
