  Kew Palace
by Jenniflower

There are various entrances into Kew Gardens. We went in through the ornate gates on the Kew side.

The queues were long (It was Easter Sunday, apparently the BUSIEST day of the year for them) We queued outside for 40 minutes, then went in.

First stop, Kew Palace!

Kew Palace is absolutely beautiful. Stunning. Three floors have been opened to the public again after 10 years, after extensive renovation work.

It was built in 1631 and is where Queen Charlotte and their family lived. She loved it. She died in the house, in a chair.

This gives you an intimate glimpse into the Royal lives that once lived and loved here.

Entrance is 5 for adults and 3 for kids.
