Informative as a history book not a guide or Royal tell all 16. November 2003
Von A. Burchfield - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
An extremely nice paperback history book about Kensington Palace. You get the history of the place from it's beginnings (there's been something built on the site for about a 1000 years) but mostly covering the period from the 17th century onwards through today.
There are a lot of photographs of various sections of the building complex, some more than 100 years old,both inside and out as well as maps and diagrams from past centuries.
The history of the place is very detailed with period illustrations and covers many of the occupants as well as the structure itself.
I really like the book and would recommend it to anyone who has been or is thinking of going to London. You will learn a lot about the Palace but be warned, this isn't a guide book. You will learn about a lot of what is there but you aren't told just what isn't open to the public (if you are it isn't very clear and I missed it)and there is no Prince(or Princess)lived here detail (Charles & Diana barely mentioned in comparison to some past inhabitants).

Large and Colorful Illustrated History 13. Februar 2014
Von L. M. Keefer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is an illustrated history, not a tour guide, of Kensington Palace which details its origins and Royal Occupants from 1605 to the present day. Kensington had private owners until 1689 when it was bought by King William and Queen Mary and passed into Royal hands. We learn from this illustrated history that Kensington's survival was in question until Queen Victoria came along. It was her childhood home, and she had great affection for it so ensured that it endured. More recently it was the home of Princess Diana and is now home to Prince William and Kate.

There are a lot of images of its royal occupants throughout history, floor plans, paintings of rooms and some photos. There are not a lot of images of recent interiors as it has been a private home to royalty. You can see photos of the rooms which Diana occupied on pinterest, if you are interested.

However, this is an excellent illustrated history with about 2/3 text and 1/3 images. One of its more fascinating occupants which I learned about in this history was Princess Louise who lived in Kensington Palace from 1875 to 1939. She was the daughter of Queen Victoria and attended art school and knew many of the leading artists and aesthetics in the late 1800's. She created the sculpture of her mother, Queen Victoria, in her coronation robes which is at Kensington Palace today.

If you are fascinated by English royalty and their homes, this is a large, colorful, appealing and comprehensive history.

better than going there. 7. September 2009
Von St. Mym - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Read this instead of going there - there's very little content, even for those wanting to worship at the Shrine of Diana, and what is there is not very well explained or presented - the paintings in particular are very badly lit, almost unviewable in fact. Hampton Court is (just) worth the 15 quid they charge to get in, Kensington at 12.50 is a complete rip off by comparison. Stick to the book.

Fascinating history of an often overlooked royal palace in London. 11. Juli 2013
Von JNolf - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Kensingtron Palace will likely receive more attention by Americans now that Prince William and the Duchess Catherine of Cambridge are about to make it their home. This book provides a detailed history of the palace including why the location was chosen for a royal palace. It also gives a history of the many royals who have and do call it home.

Not exactly what I had expected 22. August 2013
Von British History Buff - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The guide is very informative, however, I was at Kensington Palace in 2011 when it was being refurbished and had hoped this new guide would include photos of the completed renovation. Not so much.
