Queen Charlotte Tour

A Kew Palace Story

A Kew Palace Story

Love Queen Charlotte in Bridgerton? Want to know more about her? Then get to know her more closely in the intimate setting of Kew Palace, in our brand-new tour: 'Queen Charlotte: A Kew Palace Story'.

Join our costumed hosts for a 30-minute tour, in which we will share with you the true stories of Charlotte's younger life, her relationship with George III, and who she really was.

What happened on the day of Charlotte and George's wedding? Did he really ignore her for the first few weeks of their marriage? And did he give her a Pomeranian as a gift?

Bridgerton only tells a fraction of her story, allow us to tell you more...
