Benefits of the HRP Membership
Visiting any of the Historic Royal Palaces in London will undoubtedly involve purchasing an entry ticket. All the Royal Palaces offer individual or combined tickets. As you know, it is cheaper to buy combined tickets. Moreover, it is cheaper to skip the line and buy the tickets online.
As for me, I discovered that the Historic Royal Palaces offer of an Annual Membership to be beneficial.

How I have used the Historic Royal Palaces membership
I love history and anything of historical significance, so purchasing this annual membership allows me to take a walk in history as many times as I like!
I subscribed to the membership prior to my visit to Kensington Palace in May 2019 for the Exhibition on Queen Victoria which you can read here. I have since visited this iconic castle a couple of times.
I have visited the Tower of London (included in the membership a couple of time also) .

Conclusion on Historic Royal Palaces Membership
I consider £53 to be of excellent value to access these iconic places. To be able to visit more than once is an added advantage. Although I do not have plans to visit Hillsborough Castle in the near future, I have already enjoyed the returns of £53.00 and more during this past summer.
In addition, I get to do my bit to preserve these historic sites for future generation. I certainly would like my kids and grandkids and grand grandkids…to enjoy these oases of history just as I do.
As a UK taxpayer, I Gift Aid to the Historic Royal Palaces so that through my contribution they can care for the palaces.
For me, being a member of the Royal Historic Palaces is a win-win.
