Quiet Session

Join us for a quiet session in Kew Palace, aimed at those living with or caring for someone with Autism, or those who have any other sensory needs, and their families and carers.

During the session, we will be making adjustments to the experience of visiting the palace. We will be turning off our audio effects and music, suspending talks and tours and lowering the visitor capacity inside.

The sessions take place on the following dates:

Saturday 29 June, 15:30 - 16:30

Wednesday 17 July, 10:00 - 11:00

Wednesday 21 August, 15:30 - 16:30

Sunday 22 September, 10:00 - 11:00

We hope these changes will enable you to enjoy our wonderful building alongside others who understand and empathise with the challenges faced when trying to plan an activity or day out.

Our friendly team of costumed hosts will be on hand to answer any questions you might have and assist with accessibility requirements.



29 June, 17 July, 21 August and 22 September
