Coronation Queens and Guards: Enjoy some royal company and make your own peg doll Queen in a Coronation gown, or a miniature Palace guard.

Both events are free and drop-in, although at busy times numbers may be limited for the safety and comfort of visitors. They are recommended for ages five to 11.

Entry to both venues is free for under-18s, but children must be accompanied at all times by an adult, who will need a £3 Annual Pass, which then allows entry to both for a year. Both are open Tuesdays to Sundays from 10am to 5pm, plus Bank Holidays.
