A royal education at Kensington Palace

Published: Tuesday 20th of January 2009

Visitors to top London attraction Kensington Palace could save themselves the cost of a tour guide - by getting their kids fully versed-up in history.

On the weekends of February 21st to 22nd and March 21st to 22nd, the palace will be hosting family learning get-togethers, where one full-paying adult can take up to four children to hear about the royal families of the past.

February's event, from 11:00 to 16:00, will discuss the Hanoverian kings of George I and George II, who ruled at a time when partying was paramount and a solid grasp of English was not vital to ruling the land.

For those touring London in March, the learning weekend - open during the same hours - will focus on Queen Victoria, who ruled during a far more sombre time but had a rebellious streak as a younger woman.

While a London Pass cannot be used in conjunction with the free entry offer to the learning events, it can be used on other days to get a free ticket and audio guide, meaning visitors will get to see the rest of this splendid London attraction.
