The Kew Palace

kew palace london Discover a beautiful Palace and the life of the 19th century! Located in the surroundings of the Royal Botanic Garden, Kew Palace is one of most beautiful places in the world.

Founded in 1631 by Samuel Fortrey, a rich commercial of Flemish origin, Kew Palace is strongly distinguished from the other royal palaces. Indeed, its red bricks, its gabled main front and its some 50 windows confer to this four-storey brick house an atypical pace of Dutch inspiration. Only one century later the “Dutch House”, as the Palace is sometimes called, became Royal when King George II decided to rent it for his wife, Queen Caroline.
