Adult learning event

We have a diverse and exciting learning programme, bringing our palaces to life for all adult audiences. 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.

This autumn season, go behind the scenes with the new Cumberland Art Gallery at Hampton Court Palace with our look at the collecting habits of Charles I, and a chance to meet the art masters with critic Andrew Graham-Dixon.

At Kensington Palace, we continue to celebrate the Glorious Georges year, with a beginners' guide to charming at court, a debate on stereotyping migrants from German George I to today and a Christmas dance extravaganza inspired by 18th-century balls at the palace.

Find out more about the Tower of London and the First World War, inspired by our poppies installation. There are discussions on war and friendship with a Yeoman Warder and others, a look at spies then and now, plus the chance to get up close to original diaries and letters from the conflict in our archive study day.
