How does gift membership work?

  • What will I receive from you?

    When you purchase a gift membership, you will be sent a voucher. We also include the option to download a print out straight away. 

    Your gift will include an activation form with a space to include a special message to give to the lucky recipient. 

    You can alternatively opt to have the voucher sent directly to them if you wish - simply email [email protected] with the booking reference number and the name and address of the recipient so we know where to send it.  

    Please note that our team are working from home over the festive period, so any gift memberships purchased now will be processed and posted out in early January 2022.

    Until then, download our gift membership flyer to let your recipient know a wonderful present is on the way!

  • How is a gift membership activated?

    A gift membership can be activated at any point within 12 months of purchase.

    The membership would begin on the day it is activated, and would run for 12 months from that date.

Historic Royal Palaces is a self-funding charity, proud to be the guardian of six wonderful palaces. Giving the gift of membership would play a part in helping us care of our magnificent buildings and share their important stories for generations to come, thank you.
