Historic Royal Palaces
Historic Royal Palaces is the independent charity that looks after the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, the Banqueting House, Kensington Palace and Kew Palace. We help everyone explore the story of how monarchs and people have shaped society, in some of the greatest palaces ever built. We receive no funding from the Government or the Crown, so we depend on the support of our visitors, members, donors, volunteers and sponsors. These palaces are owned by The Queen on behalf of the nation, and we manage them for the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport. We believe in four principles. Guardianship: giving these palaces a future as long and valuable as their past. Discovery: encouraging people to make links with their own lives and today’s world. Showmanship: doing everything with panache. Independence: having our own point of view and finding new ways to do our work. Registered charity number 1068852
The Royal Armouries
Britain’s oldest national museum, and one of the oldest museums in the world, has four sites - The White Tower in the Tower of London, Leeds, Fort Nelson near Portsmouth and at the Frazier Museum of International History in Louisville, Kentucky, USA.
The Royal Armouries is committed to its role as guardian of the national collection of arms and armour and to the display and interpretation of its outstanding objects. In addition, it seeks to promote an understanding of the causes and outcomes of conflict, both within the community and at the national and international level. www.royalarmouries.org
