The Centre’s Social Care, Employability and Learning staff teams have completed Community Access Scheme (CAS) training for London’s Historic Royal Palaces. We are now qualified to take members of our community on trips to the following royal palaces:

  • Kensington Palace
  • Tower of London
  • Hampton Court Palace

Attendees will also receive free and discounted tickets after the visit to ensure that they are able to attend with their families again. The tickets are usually around £14-£20, so this is a great opportunity.

On 6th February this year, Her Majesty The Queen will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years of service to the people of the United Kingdom. There will be countrywide celebrations happening on Thursday 2nd June to Sunday 5th June. This will create a lot of extra interest in stories, collections and history of these spaces and our community members get in for free throughout the year when accompanied by one of our trained staff members.

Trip dates are currently being planned. If you’re interested in attending, just yourself, with a friend or with your family please email socialcare@bbbc.org.uk or employment@bbbc.org.uk, call 07507 556923 or pop into the Centre’s Welcome Hub to find out more.

Flowers for Her Majesty

This year we are also working with Tower of London on the Superbloom project to sow over 20 million seeds to create a stunning display of flower blooms to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee. Watch this space.
