Glossop Road entrance to Bar One • 17 February, 8am - 4.30pm, £35

Kensington Palace is the royal residence of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate as well as many other members of the royal family. Today we will visit the palace and look inside some of the State Rooms. Explore the Queen’s State Apartments, the Palace Gardens, The King’s Staircase and much more on this truly Royal experience. 

The trip will run with an 8am departure from the Glossop Road entrance to Bar One. You will be expected to be at the Kensington meeting point at the end of the day at 4.15pm, so we can travel back to Sheffield.



What's included with my ticket?

Your ticket is great value for money and includes all coach transport to and from Kensington, as well as your ticket entry to the palace. You're free to explore the Kensington Palace and grounds in you own time and at your own pace. We will give you an itinerary and map when you are on the coach so you can plan your day accordingly. Team Give it a Go will be with you, but you will be left to your own devices for the day.



Instructions for Ticket Holders

  • Get to the pickup location as stated on your ticket at 7.45am for a 8am departure.
  • Have your ticket ready for inspection. If you bought your ticket online, please try to remember to pick up your physical ticket from the Box Office as we currently don’t do QR scanning for Give it a Go activities.  
  • Please be dressed appropriately for the weather conditions
  • Be advised that the coaches will be leaving promptly at the coach pick up point at 4.30pm.

N.B. Our coaches will not wait for you if you are late. They will leave in the morning at the pick-up point at 8am, and again the departure point on time. If you miss the return coach, you will have to utilise public transport options to return to Sheffield.



What do I need to bring?

It is very important that you bring your ticket to show that you had paid for the trip.

We would also advise all students/explorers be prepared and bring the following:

  • Appropriate clothing for the weather on the day. A coat, umbrella, hat, scarf and gloves would probably be smart.
  • Any spending money you want
  • A rucksack
  • A bottle of water

We would also advise you to bring a small packed lunch, even if you plan on buying food when you get there.
