Registered Charity No: 1140351 (England & Wales).

From world-famous prehistoric sites to grand medieval castles, from Roman forts on the edges of an empire to a Cold War bunker, we look after over 400 places that span six millennia and bring the story of England to life.

Conserving and maintaining this collection for all to enjoy is a cornerstone of everything we do. It enables us to make history accessible and create memorable experiences to inspire visitors of all ages.

Your enthusiasm may be for the restoration of historic artefacts, the conservation of great ruins, or providing learning opportunities for the 300,000 school children who visit us each year. A gift in your Will of any size can make a lasting and valued contribution to the work that we do.

There are several ways that you can leave a gift to English Heritage. Gifts that are free from restrictions are particularly helpful as they are put towards English Heritage’s most urgent projects. However, if you would like your gift to be used at your favourite property or in support of a particular area of our work, you can specify this in your Will. If this is something you wish to do, please get in touch with our Legacy Team to discuss your intentions and ensure that your wishes can be met.

Thank you for considering supporting English Heritage in this special way.
