  • Selected dates - advance booking required

Ticketing information

Tours can start at any time between 10.00 and 15.00 and are included in palace admission, but must be booked in advance.

Free with palace ticket (advance booking required)

British Sign Language (BSL) tours of Kensington Palace are available for two routes - either the King's Apartments or the Queen's State Apartments.

We advise focusing on one of these routes, as trying to have an interpreted tour of the whole palace in one go would be too much for both the interpreter and the group!

Of course, you are always welcome to book and come along a second time in order to enjoy the tours in both areas – or why not become a Historic Royal Palaces member and enjoy unlimited free entry to all six of our palaces for a year, plus all the describer tours they offer!

Sadly, we are unable to offer tours for the other routes due to space constraints.

How to book

Tours are included in your admission ticket for Kensington Palace and are free for members. Carers are admitted free of charge.

To book a BSL tour email us, giving at least two weeks' notice, at [email protected] including the following information:

  • the preferred date(s) and time of tour
  • your party size
  • your contact details

We will then check availability with our interpreters.

Alternatively please call on (18001) 020 3166 6133 and leave a message with Kensington Palace Reception where these bookings are processed.

We will then get back to you and ensure that we have all the information required to make your visit as enjoyable and personal as possible.
