Ideal Palace arrives in Greenwich this summer! 🏰 Starting out with various locations across Greenwich

Part audio-theatre journey, part immersive art experience, part interactive trail; Ideal Palace will inspire innovation, quench wanderlust, invite playfulness and allow you to be transported around the world using your imagination. Inspired by the story of Ferdinand Cheval, a postman who was so dazzled by the beauty of the world he saw on the postcards he delivered, he spent 33 years building a magnificent palace out of these images he saw, using found objects and rocks. Join us and you too can create your own ideal palace, as well doing lots of other fun activities for all the family!
