Sessions for SEND school groups

Our brand new multisensory sessions bring the Tower of London and its characters to life.

Pupils will also explore key Tower spaces that link with the session and its stories.

New for summer term 2017

Led by a specialist presenter, pupils will have the opportunity to touch and smell objects, learn rhymes, try on costumes and take part in craft activities.

What was life at the Tower like during the reign of King Henry VIII? How would the Tudor court have prepared for a royal coronation?

During this interactive session, pupils will discover what it was like to be a courtier at the Tower and will get ready for the arrival of Queen Anne Boleyn.

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 walk through the Tower
• Rhymes and songs about the site
• Props and costumes
• A Tudor jewellery-making activity
• Anne Boleyn ‘hot seat’ activity


This session is suitable for pupils with MLD and SLD, 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.
