What people are saying about Kensington Palace

Booked through Get your Guide. Printed tickets off but downloaded App too. Purchased a day pass so worked out what we could do in a day using the Pass. Used Big Bus Tours. It takes ages to get around the whole circle of the city. We were told 2 hours but its more like 2 and 1/2. Missed seeing some of the landmarks due to road closures. We went to Westminster Abbey. Booked 3pm to 3.30pm slot at St Paul's. Boarded the bus at 1.45 and only just made the slot at 3.30pm. The bus went past the Abbey 3 or 4 times which was strange. From St Paul's we made our 6pm booking at the Shard. Would recommend purchasing the pass and the attractions we visited.

Very well organised experience. David our guide, gave very interesting facts along the way especially about Oliver Cromwell which I didn’t know. Sitting down to High Tea was very enjoyable with the group and hearing more interesting facts from David.

easy to get River pass from Westminster and just showed the pass at the museums in Greenwich. very easy and enjoyable day, would recommend.
