Let the children's imagination run wild as we explore Windsor Castle as a favourite home and working palace of our Queen. Children discover the differences and similarities between The Queen’s home and their own and how the Castle functioned as a royal residence for Queen Victoria. Through role play, dressing up and the use of original artefacts, the children imagine taking part in royal occasions at the Castle, which helps develop language skills and broaden vocabulary.
For groups with a maximum of 32 pupils, this popular session is held in the magnificent setting of the State Apartments on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays and includes a whole class role play of the investiture of Knights of the Garter. For groups between 33 and 60 pupils, it takes place Monday to Friday in the Moat Room, our dedicated learning space.
