Ticketing information

Included in palace admission

It is 1914 and the palace has been closed for months because of the threat of attack by militant suffragettes. Now it has reopened but the danger has not gone away.

Join Superintendent of the Works Mr Preedy on a tour, but be prepared to abide by stringent new restrictions designed to protect the palace and its magnificent Picture Galleries from the suffragette menace.

What will the Grace and Favour residents, some of them committed to the cause of votes for women make of this? What do the visitors think? Which side will you be on?
