How you can help

We are facing serious financial challenges as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic. With a £100 million shortfall in our finances this year, we need your support now more than ever, to sustain the charity through this difficult period.

Sponsoring a stone

Readers of our Membership magazine ‘Inside Story’ may have spotted news of an exciting campaign to sponsor a stone on the White Tower. We will be launching this very soon; in the meantime, we ask that you email us to register your interest.

Discover the palaces

You can virtually explore stories from our palaces whilst we are closed to visitors. We look forward seeing you back at our sites soon.

Keeping you safe on your visit

We hold the industry standard, 'We're Good to Go' for all our sites, ensuring we are following government and industry guidelines, with processes in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing when visiting. We look forward to offering you a very warm welcome as always when we are able to open again.
