Session dates and times

Become a Tiny Explorer

Sessions are very active and we encourage both adult and child to play and learn together. They are a unique opportunity for your family to explore inside the historic spaces guided by a specialist facilitator. Be prepared to sing, dance, play games and explore with your senses as you discover the stories of the palace together.

To help us conserve the palaces and ensure everyone has a great time, we ask for your support with a few simple rules:

  • These sessions are free from mobile phone and camera use.
  • Leave eating and drinking till after the session has finished.
  • Hold walkers hands when inside the historic spaces.
  • Most importantly have fun and get involved!
