London’s royal palaces

9 Hertford Street is within easy walking distance of three historic royal palaces – Buckingham Palace (11 minutes), St James’ Palace (11 minutes) and Kensington Palace (36 minutes) – perfect for lovers of history, architecture and art.

Buckingham Palace is open until 2 October this year, with a special exhibition celebrating the Platinum Jubilee.

Kensington Palace is holding a must-see exhibition, Life Through a Royal Lens, until 30 October. This fascinating display includes candid photos taken by the royal family, which are just so lovely!

St James’ Palace isn’t open to the public, however you can attend Sunday services in the Chapel Royal and Queen’s Chapel at certain times throughout the year.
