For blind and partially sighted visitors
Describer Tours are available for the following exhibitions:
- King's State Apartments
- Victoria: A Royal Childhood
Tours are included in palace admission but must be booked at least two weeks in advance.
Each tour will take around 1.5 to 2 hours.
We would recommend booking one tour per visit, to allow enough time for a relaxed and rewarding experience in these historic rooms.
Of course, you are welcome to book a tour of a second exhibition for your next visit. Alternatively, become a member and get your next visit to Kensington Palace for free, as well as unlimited adventures at our five other palaces, a 10% discount in our shops and cafés, and exclusive events.
