This home is lovely, a piece of history frozen in time. The grounds and garden are lovely as well, and as I understand, many people come just to see the gardens. If you’re interested in a long walk to see the Kew Palace as well, it’s well worth it. Many of the original furnishings remain, including a bed and chair that belonged to Queen Charlotte. The home is the smallest of the Historic Royal Palaces, but very rich in detail. I didn’t get to see it (it closes earlier than the main house) but there is a small cottage that Queen Charlotte used for tea, and I was told that much of the interior furnishings remain. If you love interior detail, lovely gardens, and history, this is the place for you. It’s a wonderful walk back in time.

While visiting the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew for the first time, we were surprise to find Kew Palace within the grounds of the botanic gardens. There is no extra charge to enter the palace once you are within the botanic gardens. However, there are strategically positioned donation boxes within the palace building with signs requesting donations to assist with the upkeep of the palace. The palace building is quite small compared to other British royal palaces we have visited. It is more like a large country house in style, rather than a royal palace. All of the floors of the palace are open to the public and they are accessed by a narrow central staircase. The rooms have nice displays with appropriate period furniture. Information plaques are displayed in each of the rooms providing an insight into royal life within the palace. There are lovely views of the palaces ornate formal garden located to the rear of the palace, available from the upper floors of the palace building. The palace’s kitchen is located in a nearby out-building and it is also open to the public. For us, the Kew Palace was an unexpected gem during our visit to the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew. It is one on the “must-see” attractions within the grounds of the botanic gardens!

The palace of King George III and his wife Queen Charlotte looks pretty modest, but apparently the King and his family (15 children!) enjoyed the tranquility of it. In all honesty, the Palace Garden with its lovely fountain and the Kitchen Herb Garden impressed me more than the Palace itself. The kitchen is small and looks pretty basic, but it was quite interesting to look at the book of record with the list of products used for the king's meals. You can see the rooms where the bread and pastries were baked, the fish and meat stored, vegetables washed... If you have a Royal Historical Membership card, the entrance to the Kew Palace is free.
