Registered Charity No: 1068852 (England & Wales).

Each of the six palaces in our care has survived for hundreds of years. They have witnessed peace and prosperity and splendid periods of building and expansion, but they also share more turbulent times, of war and domestic strife, politics and revolution.

Historic Royal Palaces is the independent charity which looks after the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, Banqueting House, Kensington Palace, Kew Palace and Hillsborough Castle. We exist to help everyone explore the stories of how monarchs and people shaped society, in some of the greatest palaces ever built. By leaving a gift in your will to Historic Royal Palaces you can help to make history and ensure that these magnificent palaces and the stories within them are here for future generations to enjoy.

We receive no funding from either the Government or the Crown and we rely on the support of our visitors, members, legators and volunteers.

Please consider leaving a gift in your will to Historic Royal Palaces and help make our future as valuable as our past.
