Plants and princes
Updated 25 March. In line with Public Health England guidance, we have taken the decision to close all six of our palaces and gardens until 31st May. We will be reviewing this and will keep you updated. Please read our statement for further information. Read our statement
Key Stage 1 | Subject: History, Geography, Science, Art & Design Topics: Tudors, Stuarts, Georgians | Session Type: Route-based
Take a tour through history from the formal Tudor and Stuart gardens to the landscaped gardens and wildernesses of the Georgian era where kings and queens once walked.
Led by a costumed presenter, children will learn how the gardens changed according to the fashions of the day, the different ways in which the plants were used, where they came from and how the gardeners looked after them.
Please note that this is an outdoor session so children will need to bring appropriate outdoor wear. The session will still take place outdoors unless weather conditions are extreme, in which case it will take place inside the palace.
