Make memories

Do you want to spend more quality time with your loved ones this year? There’s something for all the family at the historic royal palaces. Weekends and school holidays are precious, and what better way to spend them than by getting lost in the Hampton Court Maze together, cooking up a feast in Henry VIII’s Kitchens or learning how to fight like a medieval knight?

Say goodbye to stress

A Historic Royal Palaces membership is the perfect way to leave your worries behind and be present in the moment. There is so much to see and do at the palaces, you could easily spread your adventures over several trips (which is especially ideal when the little ones get tired). Just come back and pick up where you left off last time and make your membership work for you.

Save money

If you want to tighten your purse strings in 2020, then you’re in luck. With your membership, you can visit the palaces as many times as you like throughout the year, and you’ll get a 10% discount off your entry ticket into Kew Gardens. If you fancy a spot of lunch or want to buy a gift on your day out, you’ll also get a helpful 10% discount in the shops, cafés and restaurants. Plus, you’ll also be able to beat the queues, as you’ll be invited to see new exhibitions and the Magic Garden in Hampton Court Palace before anyone else.

Keep learning

Across the palaces, you’ll find engaging, interactive displays and shows such as Horrible Histories. This means it’s never been easier to soak up centuries of history while also having fun. You and your family can learn how things grow in the kitchen gardens, how money was made at The Tower’s Mint and how the Tower of London once even had a zoo! Plus, there are plenty of charming antiques and paintings to discover, too.
