Kew PalaceBuilt in 1631 for merchant Samuel Fortrey, and later acquired by George II as an annexe to Kew House, Kew Palace served as a family country retreat for George III and his extensive family. Nestled among the greenery of the (now) Kew Gardens and perched on the river, the King loved the palace so much he was given the nickname "Farmer George" as he spent so much time away from the centre of London, out "in the country" at Kew. The palace itself was comparatively small with only four storeys but was favoured by a string of royals. First used by the royals in 1729, George III officially bought the property in 1781. It later became a more permanent home for the Royal Family - King George IV was born here, while Queen Charlotte died here in 1818. It is the last survivor of several important royal residences at Kew and after a long closure for restoration, the palace opened up once more to visitors be it of a less regal variety - in summer 2006.
