Diana: Her Fashion Story Hotel & Ticket Break

Remembering "The People's Princess"

With 2017 marking the 20th anniversary of Princess Diana's death, a new exhibition at Kensington Palace celebrates her life and the evolution of her image and style. The palace was a place of unique significance in the Princess's life and was the focus of a worldwide tribute following her death as thousands of people left an unforgettable sea of flowers at the gates. Echoing this tribute 20 years on, the palace gardeners commemorate the Princess's life with a beautiful White Garden reflecting the seasons from spring to late summer.

Day One

Make your way to your hotel. Your room should be ready from about 2pm, and the rest of the day will be free for you to explore London at leisure.

Day Two

This morning the coach will pick you up from the hotel and head to Kensington Palace, which is about a 15 minute walk through Kensington Gardens from the coach drop-off point. Like Windsor, it remains a working royal residence as the official London home of Prince William and his family, as well as other members of the Royal Family. See some of the finest in the Royal Collection, which hang in pride of place along the King's Gallery, and the surprisingly intimate Queen's Apartments. Learn about life in the Stuart and Georgian royal courts, and marvel at the Palace's new exhibition - Diana: Her Fashion Story.

The highlight of your visit, the exhibition charts the Princess's changing style and image over the years. See items from her wardrobe that were selected to complement a range of different occasions - whether formal, charity or glamorous galas. From late April, you'll also have the opportunity to stroll through the new, commemorative White Garden and past the paved terraces ornamental pond and brilliant beds of the Sunken Garden.

At the end of the visit the coach will take you back to the hotel so that you can collect your luggage and then make your way home after a wonderful break.

We did 'make your own way' as didn't realise we could've had a coach take us there, so this could be made clearer. It made it a lot more expensive for us having to get the train and when I realised my mistake I rang but there was no option to change my booking (even though the price was only £4 different)

The hotel was lovely, but on one of the hottest days of summer air conditioning was desperately needed, but sadly they didn't have it.

Crewe, Cheshire Family
We were three generations going along to see the exhibition, Diana's Dresses and we all loved it! Great being one of the first groupsin at 10.00 a.m. so thereby avoiding any "bottlenecks" and able to take as long as we wanted looking at the displays. Everything ran to time and we all had a great trip. Hotel suited the purpose, although my single room was very snug!! Hotel location was ideal for us do a little retail therapy nearby, and lots of places to eat. We enjoyed drinks in Hudson's Bar in the hotel, great cocktails!! Staff were very helpful in the hotel, and also our tour guide. Great value for money too.
