The Go London Blog is reporting that Kensinton Palace is now closed until March 26th 2012 as they put the final touches on it’s renovations.

From Go London:

During the next few weeks the finishing touches will be added to the new Hub at the new entrance, the new cafe and shop, and the new permanent exhibition about Queen Victoria: Victoria Revealed. I visited this exhibition late last year for a preview tour and I can tell you there’s an emotional journey to be discovered as Victoria has so many major events in her life happen at Kensington Palace.

There will be four permanent exhibitions and visitors can choose which order to visit each or whether to only visit one as all are accessible from the new Hub. The exhibitions feature Queen Victoria, Diana (Princess of Wales), the Queen’s State Apartments, and the King’s State Apartments.

Coming in May 2012 there will be the first temporary exhibition focusing on the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations to be called “Jubilee: A View from the Crowd.” This will feature animated views of scenes Queen Victoria may have seen from her carriage during her Diamond Jubilee celebrations in 1897.

The Orangery will be open as normal during this period.
