Tiny adventures in BIG places! Our specially designed creative play sessions are active: encouraging both adult and child to play and learn together. The central focus is always on stories - you'll hear the amazing stories of the palaces and people who lived in them.

Each 45 to 60 minute Tiny Explorers session takes place both in our education rooms and in the palace itself - there is lots of moving around involved! Participants are guided by the session leader and our team of volunteers and assistants from room to room – singing, exploring, playing and smiling. Due to the delicate nature of the buildings and furnishings, we ask that everyone join us in helping to take care of the historic spaces as we move through them.

Check the details on this page to find out which kind of session is running on which date. Come along to a few different ones to get a taste of different creative play approaches. Please note that the session fee does not include full palace entry: you will be greeted at the meeting point and guided to and from your session by our team.
