A Photographers & Visitors Guide & Timeless Stories

Kew Palace

14 pics.   Kew Palace is within the grounds of Kew Gardens and entrance is included in the price of admission to the gardens.  Non-commercial photography is permitted inside the palace but without the use of flash.

The gardens and its many attractions were created by Lady Augusta following the death of her husband Prince Frederick.  She was much influenced in this endeavor by Lord Bute.  A portrait of the lady can be found further down.

  3. That ceiling is awesome! And I love that geometric paint job in palace bedroom 1. Like the others, I’m surprised you’re allowed to photograph here. Glad you are 🙂

    • Glad you enjoyed it. Unfortunately there are quite a lot of places where photography is not allowed, but I’m finding a few and the attitude does seem to be changing. Everybody wants to photograph these days and are gravitating more to the venues that allow.

      Thanks for the visit.

  5. I’ve never seen a room in an English house decorated quite like that blue bedroom towards the top. Interesting.

    • Yes and she did well with Kew, it being a repository for seeds from all over the world. So not a bad old stick really. 🙂
