Build your own discovery’ (BYOD) is an access scheme for the adult community groups and education providers based local to Kensington Palace, within the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea, Hammersmith and Fulham and the City of Westminster. This programme is managed by the Learning & Engagement (L&E) team.

In addition to providing free access to the palace, BYOD aims to engage local adults with the stories, collections and historic spaces in ways that are meaningful and relevant to them. We do this by training up and supporting group leaders and adult learning tutors to lead visits for their groups to the palace.
We want local community members to gain a sense of ownership and belonging at the palace, especially those who would not normally visit the palace or see it as a place of interest for them. We help make this happen by providing discount entry tickets for each group member (after they visit) so that they can return to the palace with a friend, sharing their experience of Kensington Palace with someone new.
