Buckingham Palace Family Festival
Time & Location
Our annual Family Festival is back, and bigger and better than ever before.
Across the August Bank Holiday weekend, our London sites will be alive with family activities.
In the Family Pavilion, join StrongWomen Science to discover the scientific secrets behind some astounding circus tricks, and learn more about the female inventors and scientists working in Queen Victoria’s time.
At the Royal Mews, take part in our Arts and Crafts Fete. Experiment with different art techniques, from watercolour painting to photography, to making your hobby horse and much more besides! All these sessions are drop in, and designed for families to work together to create their own lovely art work to take home with them.
In The Queen’s Gallery, take inspiration from Leonardo da Vinci’s amazing drawings, and have a go at making your own sketches using the same materials as Leonardo, including red chalk and charcoal.
All of the Family Festival events are free with your standard admission, and are suitable for families of all ages.
Tickets can be purchased for Buckingham Palace, the Royal Mews and The Queen's Gallery individually, or a Royal Day Out ticket gives you access to all 3 venues.
