Our Learning & Engagement programme creates opportunities for all people to explore the story of how monarchs and people have shaped society, in some of the greatest palaces ever built.

We have embarked on a bold and ambitious expansion of our programme that is transforming the scale and impact of learning and engagement for all audiences.  We aim to enable the widest possible audience to discover, explore and enjoy the stories of our palaces. 

Our approach will make learning even more central to how our audiences explore the stories of the palaces on-site, off-site and on-line. We work in three teams to create and deliver the programme:

Explorer Programme Team — delivering informal and formal engagement opportunities to young people from 0-19 and their families.

Events and Partnership Team — large-scale learning events and the Uncover programme: engagement opportunities for adult audiences.

Multi-channel Production Team — publishing, digital content, design and the image library.

The Learning & Engagement programme at Historic Royal Palaces is for everyone.
