Due to the nature of our venue, we are limited to holding no more than 80 events at Kensington Palace each year.
It is perhaps the world’s most beautiful orangery. Popular year-round, this palatial venue can accommodate receptions for up to 570 when using the terrace and marquees. Queen Anne intended it as a greenhouse for her orange trees in winter, but it was frequently used as a party venue for balls and celebrations.
Utilise several spaces within the King’s State Apartments to accommodate larger guest numbers, including the King’s Dining Room. An imposing image of King Charles I on horseback dominates the room’s east end, first built to showcase King William III’s finest paintings. Today, the palace’s largest and longest room is filled with Royal Collection masterpieces and is popular for receptions and dinners as well as private concerts and recitals.
This long, spacious room offers stunning views over Kensington Gardens and the palace’s Wiggly Walk. Once a domestic space where Queen Mary II and her ladies-in-waiting would embroider, the gallery has great acoustics and comfortably accommodates large numbers.
This spacious entrance opens onto the beautiful East Front Gardens. The hall elegantly includes four spaces that lead guests into the heart of the palace, where they can mingle as part of a large drinks reception or assemble for a private view.
