Kew Palace is a brick mansion with a distinctly Dutch look in the grounds of Kew Gardens. In the eighteenth century, it was here that George III was confined during episodes of the mysterious and debilitating illness that is now believed to have been porphyria. On the ground floor there's an audiovisual display about the 15 children George III had with Queen Charlotte (when the King was well the royal family often stayed at Kew Palace in the summer). New items include a suit belonging to George III and his breakfast service. The royal kitchens are also open. Kew Palace's annual opening takes place between March and September.
