Explore the Palace and see if you can find the white cockades along the way. Supporters of Bonnie Prince Charlie liked to show their loyalty by wearing a white cockade on their bonnets, and ladies on their dresses. However, several Jacobites have lost their white cockades in the Palace today- can you find one in every room? 

As well as searching for the white cockades you can make one of your own to take home. 

All activities are included in your Palace ticket. You can convert your ticket into a 1-Year Pass for no extra charge, enabling you to come to the Palace again and again for the next year, when we’ll have lots more activities for you to enjoy.
