This year we’ll be offering our own fantastic range of workshops, including our new Trusted Guardians work supported by our publication with Gresham Books plus inspiration to help your pupils enter the Never Such Innocence 2018 competition- a poetry, art and song competition for 9-16 year olds commemorating the Great War and the 100th Armistice anniversary.

We are able to adapt our programmes to fit the needs of individual schools. Sessions will focus on speaking and listening, art, design and technology and history but can be tailored to your requirements.

We recommend visits of around 90 minutes. Our aim is to provide each group with an enjoyable and worthwhile learning experience outside the classroom.

You can book for a morning visit which will include watching the Changing of the Queen’s Life Guard at 11am – a tradition renowned all over the world.

Or you can book an afternoon session and finish in time to see the Garrison Inspection at 4pm.
