Why the Historic Royal Palaces (HRP) Annual Membership is good for me

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.

If the Annual Membership is not for you, you may wish to purchase the following visitors pass and other related tours.

    This definitely seems like a good idea. I’m sure if I lived in London or spent a lot of time there I would do the same. Great value for money really!

    A wonderful post Georgina. I plan to visit England next year & visiting the Royal Palaces is something we would enjoy doing. We have been to the Tower Bridge & would love to return. We love visiting the historic sites & I think the membership price is very reasonable. I also appreciate the link, so I can check more details myself later. I will Pin this post for future reference.

    Excellent post Georgina! If I lived in London I would purchase the pass for certain as I could see visiting as often as you. I wasn’t aware of the Banqueting House or Kew Palace though so you gave me ideas for our next trip to London 😊
