Historic Royal Palaces is a self-funding charity, proud to be the guardian of six wonderful palaces. 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 – but we urgently need your support if we are to continue to do so.
The Coronavirus pandemic has had a devastating impact on us. We are facing a £100 million shortfall in our finances this year – an income reduction of over 85% - and now urgently need the support of individuals and businesses to help us through this extraordinary period.
If you love the palaces and believe in what we do, we have never needed your support more. Please follow the links to find out how you can support us, to continue to build on the incredible work we have already achieved. You can also visit our online shop.
Or you can donate by text. Simply Text PALACES to 70085 to donate £5. Texts cost £5 plus one standard rate message.
With your support we can keep the spirit of the palaces alive for the future, for everyone.
