Support our six wonderful palaces

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 need your support if we are to continue to do so.

As a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, we are facing serious financial challenges which threaten our future and we need your help to support our financial recovery. 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. 

Thank you.

The White Tower was begun in the reign of William the Conqueror (1066-87) and completed by 1100. The fortress was originally faced with huge blocks of pale marble-like Caen stone imported from Normandy. In 1636-8 the external appearance of the White Tower was significantly altered with the replacement of much of its cut-stone work and window surrounds with Portland stone.

The primary role of the White Tower was as a fortress and stronghold but it also served as a royal residence and as the setting for major governmental and ceremonial functions.
