Sensory Palaces for people with Dementia and their carers

Sensory Palaces is a health and wellbeing learning programme for people living with early ‘mild’ dementia and their carers, that take place at Hampton court and Kew. Each session provides a chance for participants to explore stories from the palaces, participate in fun, sensory activities and build social connections.

Sessions are free and available throughout the year and can be booked on a quarterly basis. Spaces for Sensory Palaces sessions are very limited and all participants must be booked in advance. We welcome bookings from individuals or organisations wishing to block-book clients or service users.

All participants are required to speak to a member of the Sensory Palaces team prior to their first booking. This is to help us assess individual needs in confidence and ensure the programme meets the expectations and needs for all participants. If you are interested in booking a space on an upcoming session, please email to arrange a phone discussion. Please note sessions are suitable for people with mild/early stage dementia and their carers as defined by the Alzheimer’s Society, and people living with dementia must be accompanied by a carer.
