The Enchanted Palace

The Enchanted Palace is an absolutely stunning new installation at Kensington Palace, which tells the stories of Kensington's past princesses. Princess Diana's former home has been transformed into an explosion of Fashion, Theatre and Design, featuring installations by Vivienne Westwood, William Tempest, Stephen Jones, Boudicca, Aminaka Wilmont and Echo Morgan, and one of the particular highlights is Queen Victoria's bedroom (where she woke to find out she was Queen) which features an outstanding Tempest creation with 2000 origami birds. Guests are also be confronted with live performance from the Wildworks Theatre Company, providing interactive theatre, to add authenticity and fantasy to your visit. It is the best installation I have seen in a very long time, and an absolutely fantastic day out for the family, particularly is it is in Kensington Palace, Kensington Gardens, which is also the home to the Peter Pan inspired Princess Diana Memorial Playground. 

If you, like me, love fantasy, escapism, and fairytales, then this is an event that absolutely cannot be missed!
