Kew Palace and Royal Kitchens


The most intimate of royal palaces, Kew Palace was built as a private house in 1631 and used by the royal family between 1729 and 1818. In happier times, George III, Queen Charlotte and their 15 children enjoyed a relatively simple domestic routine at Kew. In later years the atmosphere darkened as Kew became a retreat for the ailing King.

Experience a riot of colour in authentically re-created Georgian rooms, before wandering through the eerie upper floor, left untouched for centuries. The Royal Kitchens newly restored in 2012, yet untouched since Queen Charlotte's death in 1818 are a fascinating insight into Georgian culinary life.
