What was it like for Queen Victoria growing up in Kensington Palace?

Pupils will explore the palace in which Victoria spent her childhood, learn about some of her favourite toys and pastimes and experience some of the sounds and smells of the time.

This session is based partly in a classroom and partly on route in the palace. It will provide pupils with the opportunity to explore new environments and to develop their social and emotional skills through:

  • A sensory story about Victoria’s childhood, the strict ‘Kensington System’ which she grew up in, the gardens where she spent her time and the animals that kept her company
  • Trying on Victorian costume and learning about when Victoria became Queen
  • A sensory tour around palace, exploring the rooms in which Princess Victoria spent her childhood, where she found out she was queen and held her first official meeting as monarch
  • Object handling, focusing on the toys and games that Victoria played with as a child


This session is suitable for pupils with MLD, SLD and PMLD, aged between 6 and 16 years, who attend special schools or units.

It is aimed at a class size of 10 pupils, plus accompanying adults. We do however, aim to be as flexible as possible, and would be happy to discuss class size further with you at point of booking.

You will also have the opportunity to make a request for the presenter to be in costume, should this be appropriate.
