Adult learning event

We have a diverse and exciting learning programme, which brings our palaces to life for everyone. Join us on a journey into these amazing palaces, where you’ll meet extraordinary characters, hear compelling tales and discover remarkable treasures.

Talks, workshops and events

We have a vibrant, ticketed public programme of learning events, including talks, debates, workshops and study days with historians, curators, conservators and more.

Our current talks and debates include brunchtime lectures with Bucks Fizz at Kensington Palace, a thousand years of death at the Tower of London, the world's first, we think, pub quiz in a palace at Banqueting House and insights into the lesser known characters of Hampton Court. Click here to view our full Autumn/Winter 2015 adult learning programme.

You can also listen to a collection of podcasts recorded live at our palaces.

Conservation masterclasses

We offer a programme of one-day building conservation and repair masterclasses in association with the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB).

The masterclasses often coincide with current conservation projects at our palaces and are delivered through hands-on workshops, lectures and practical demonstrations. To find out more and book, watch the video below and visit the SPAB website.

Communities and groups

We are developing a range of talks, workshops, training and projects for communities and groups. Find out about our work at the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, Banqueting House, Kensington Palace and Kew Palace.

Sensory Palaces health and wellbeing programme

Sensory Palaces is a unique health and wellbeing programme designed for adults with learning difficulties and mental health issues. The workshops combine historical storytelling with a multi-sensory approach. 

We are currently exploring how we can broaden the use of sensory learning for all audiences.
