Kew Palace
The most intimate of royal palaces, Kew was built as a private house in 1631 and used by the royal family from 1729 to 1818. Sense the joys and sorrows of past royal lives in intimate detail as King George III and his family come to life through a fascinating display of personal artefacts.

In happier times George III, Queen Charlotte and their 15 children enjoyed a relatively simple domestic routine at Kew, the palace rang with laughter and fun, however in later years the atmosphere darkened as family rivalries become more intense and relationships soured. Kew became a retreat for an ailing King George and a virtual prison for his elder unmarried daughters.
