As a self-funding charity, we urgently need your help
We are facing serious financial challenges as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic. With a £98 million shortfall in our finances this year, we need your support now more than ever, to sustain the charity through this difficult period.
We're pleased to be re-opening more of our palaces including Tower of London on 10 July and Kensington Palace on 30 July, as well as interior spaces at Hampton Court and Hillsborough Castle and Gardens. 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. We will be offering you a very warm welcome as always, and we have some new ways of doing things. But we're confident you're going to have a great time.
