To mark the 300th anniversary of the Georgian dynasty, Kew Palace will explore the home of George II's grandson, the future George III of 'madness' fame, with new objects and displays. There will also be a Georgian garden party featuring historically appropriate food, music and costumes at Kew Palace on 16th and 17th August. There will also be Glorious Georges events at Kensington Palace and Hampton Court Palace.

 

About Kew Palace

Built in 1631 for merchant Samuel Fortrey, and later acquired by George II as an annexe to Kew House, Kew Palace served as a family country retreat for George III and his extensive family. Nestled among the greenery of the (now) Kew Gardens and perched on the river, the King loved the palace so much he was given the nickname "Farmer George" as he spent so much time away from the centre of London, out "in the country" at Kew.
