Toll-Free Phone for British Palaces

September 28, 1997

One-stop shopping for information on some of Britain's royal palaces and other tourist attractions is provided by a new toll-free number: (800) 806-7187.

The number gives recorded information on the Kensington Palace State Apartments, where Princess Diana lived before her death, Hampton Court Palace, Kew Palace and the Banqueting House in Whitehall, as well as the Tower of London. It includes descriptions of the sites, directions, hours open, special events and how to mail-order items from gift shops at the sites.

A note on the Kensington Palace State Apartments: They will be closed at the end of this month for renovations and are expected to reopen next May.
