The Great Staircase at Kensington Palace

It was wonderful to visit Kensington Palace and to see the Victoria Revealed exhibit. Walking through the palace left me in awe of the history and the previous residents who wandered these halls. There was also a lovely tea room to enjoy. My only quibble about Kensington Palace is that the entrance fee is much too high for what little we see of the palace. That said, I savored every moment at the palace, especially this staircase.

The Great Staircase at Kensington Palace. The staircase was painted by William Kent and completed in 1724. The wrought iron balustrade is by Jean Tijou.

I wish I had thought to take a better photograph of the staircase, but below is a snippet of what the staircase looks like today (spoiler alert: it looks almost identical).

Have you been to Kensington Palace? If yes, what did you enjoy the most?
