Kew Palace

 KidRated’s Kew Palace Top Tips:

  • Kew Palace is only open from April-September
  • Check out the kitchens which remain unchanged since 1818!
  • A good place to explore if your kids grow bored of flowers and plants in Kew Gardens


Located in the beautiful Kew Gardens, Kew Palace is the third palace in the gardens that has held this name. It was designed by King George III and is now open for public viewing.


Is your child’s bedroom fit for a prince or a princess? Find out by comparing it to the bedrooms of Queen Charlotte’s and George III daughters. You can also look around the Royal Kitchens, finding out about their history and the staff that worked in them.


The Royal Menu, offering six or seven plates in each part of the three-course meal, is also on display for you to wonder at. Beside the palace lies Queen Charlotte’s gorgeous rustic cottage which housed kangaroos during the 1800s. Overall, this palace is definitely worth a visit when you come to Kew.


Whilst you’re in Kew Gardens there’s no harm in checking out what’s on at the moment so you don’t miss out. Don’t forget to check out the gift shop!


Royal palace-lovers should also check out Buckingham Palace, Hampton Court Palace and Windsor Castle.

Teen Verdict

Things to do, places to go for kids and teenagers - cool, academic, fun and entertaining in London and beyond with KidRated


Kew Palace was pretty cool to explore. I particularly liked seeing the old kitchens and how things were done back then. It’s always impressive seeing historic houses as it really gives you an insight into how people lived back then. I’d say that Kew Palace is best to visit alongside exploring Kew Gardens itself as it won’t take up a whole day. Overall, was worth the visit.

  • It doesn’t take long to visit Kew Palace but it’s a nice addition to a day at Kew Gardens at no extra cost.
  • There is a family trail to give you a reason to take the kids.
  • It’s pretty close to the kid’s play area so try not to let them know that so you do get to see the Palace.
