Kensington Palace tour – visually impaired
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Symbol Cane
I am visually impaired and was accompanied by my sighted husband. Our Guide was fantastic as he had done his research, conveyed great enthusiasm and brought the palace alive through his clear descriptions. He was willing to answer questions. He got the pace right so we didn’t feel patronised as more often than not, guides go slowly which leads to boredom. My husband enjoyed the experience of viewing the palace for himself and had a break from explaining it to me. Not that he minds but valued someone with extensive knowledge taking the lead. We now know so much more about the Georgians thanks to Julian. There wasn’t a Braille Guide but this experience was better. We went well over the time allocation but that is probably because we asked lots of questions and were not rushed. It was great that our guide was able to allocate so much time to us. A really interesting and enjoyable morning!
