Your support matters

Our sites have been the scenes of the most remarkable moments in our history, from the Norman Conquest to the negotiation of the Good Friday agreement; they have so many stories to tell.

Historic Royal Palaces is a self-funding charity. Your support through membership makes a real difference in keeping the spirit of the palaces alive for the future, for everyone.
