COVID-19 Update

In line with recent government guidelines discouraging non-essential travel, we will be closing all visitor car parking as from 24th March (including Blue Badge parking). We have not taken this decision lightly, as ever the welfare of our visitors and staff is at the heart of everything we do during these difficult times.  The main A44 Hensington Gates will be closed until further notice. 

The Palace and Gardens and all other facilities remain closed at this time.

Please see for all help and guidance on Covid-19 and social distancing, as we ask you not to put yourself, family members or friends at any risk.
