The 300th anniversary of the Hanoverian accession is celebrated at Hampton Court Palace, Kensington Palace and Kew Palace from April

-- /EPR NETWORK/ -- London's Historic Royal Palaces - the name for a group of attractions that includes the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, Kew Palace and Kensington Palace– will spend 2014 celebrating the Georgians contribution to London life with a series of events across their premises. The Hanoverian accession, which ushered in the Georgian era, took place 300 years ago and this is to be remembered at sites all round London. These and other London events can be viewed at LondonTown.com, London's best website for tourists and visitors hoping to get the most out of their trip to the capital, with great tips on London's best hotels, shops, museums, restaurants and galleries.

The Glorious Georges will take place simultaneously at three different Historic Royal Palaces, with each one focussing on a different aspect and era of the Georgian dynasty. All three will open on 17 th April. The court of George I will be remembered at Hampton Court Palace with an exhibition taking place in the very rooms that George once occupied at Hampton Court and featuring stunning re-representations of the Queen's State and Private Apartments. Over at Kensington Palace, visitors will be able to explore the court of George II and Queen Caroline through a glorious transformation of the State Apartments, where the King and Queen would entertain guests in lavish style. The story will continue at Kew Palace, home of George II's grandson, the future George III. George III is now best known for his ‘madness', but this exhibition will focus on his upbringing, showing how this proudly ‘British' king developed his intense patriotism and love of his country.

As well as these three exhibitions, all three palaces will also hold special themed garden parties, featuring food, costume, music and games from the Georgian era. At Hampton Court, this will take place on 26th & 27th July, at Kensington Palace it will be on 14 th & 15 th June and at Kew Palace it will be 16 th & 17 th August.
