Make a donation

Our palaces are expensive to maintain. We spent £32 million conserving and maintaining them in the last financial year. The running costs of Hampton Court Palace (with over 1390 rooms) are eye-watering. Please help us by giving what you can. Thank you.

Volunteer with us

Volunteers support the palaces in many different ways. See what roles we have available and register your interest.
