Kensington Palace’s state rooms offer elegant interiors that lend flamboyance and flair to a wonderful evening. These include the Cupola Room and the King’s Gallery – the palace’s largest space. The palatial interior décor, Portland stone terrace and tranquil surroundings of the palace’s Orangery make it a highly sought after venue for weddings. Receptions larger than the Orangery’s 300 capacity can be accommodated with the lawn and terrace marquees.
