More about membership

Five reasons to join us

Make family memories

At our six historic royal palaces there's something for all the family.

Weekends and school holidays are precious and what better way to spend them than getting lost in the Hampton Court Maze together, cooking up a feast in Henry VIII’s Kitchens or learning to fight like a medieval knight.

Flexibility and freedom

With so much to see and do at our palaces, you can spread your adventures over several trips and pop in and see us whenever you like. It's a great way to fill up the summer holidays!

There’s no pressure to see everything at once with membership and if the little ones get tired, no problem, come back and pick up where you left off last time. Whatever suits you and your family.

Great value for money

You can visit our palaces as many times as you like, all year round plus get a 10% discount on your entry ticket into Kew Gardens.

In addition you get a 10% discount in our shops, cafés and restaurants, as well as unique members-only events. You’ll be invited to see our new exhibitions before anyone else and be first into the Magic Garden playground when it opens each spring.

Learn and discover

At our palaces you’ll find engaging, interactive displays and shows such as Horrible Histories that mean your family will soak up centuries of important history whilst having fun.

They’ll also learn how things grow in the kitchen gardens, how money was made at The Tower’s Mint and how the Tower of London once had a zoo!

Fun all year round

There's always something to do whatever the weather. You can hunt down Easter bunnies on a Lindt Gold Bunny Hunt, climb London’s original skyscraper at Kew and enjoy numerous family picnics during the summer holidays.

When things cool down in autumn, cosy up by the fire in the Tudor kitchens then skate into winter at the Tower of London or Hampton Court Palace Ice Rink.
