Forum Celebration Dinner

Kensington Palace

Surrounded by parkland, Kensington Palace offers a welcome retreat from the nearby hustle and bustle of central London. Its understated elegance makes the palace an ideal companion to the Royal Parks’ tranquil gardens and ponds.

Yet behind this calm, peaceful façade you will discover a spirited venue of royal extravagance and magnificent beauty, full of lively stories of rivalry, politics, heartache and romance.

A prestigious stage for hundreds of years, the state rooms are where powerful politicians and courtiers jostled for influence and the ear of the king. And the palace’s exquisite interior and stylish character has been shaped by centuries of artists, craftsmen and fashionable residents — from William Kent to Princess Diana.
