Photography and Filming

Visitors are welcome to take photographs without flash within Kensington Palace. Photographic equipment- such as tripods and selfie sticks- should not be used inside the building. Filming is not permitted within the palace.

Historic Royal Palaces is a safeguarding aware organisation and takes it's responsibility to protect children and vulnerable people seriously. We may sometimes ask therefore that visitors refrain from filming or photographing other visitors. If you have any concerns about a member of the public taking photos of your school or education group, please speak to a member of staff.
