Why the Historic Royal Palaces (HRP) Annual Membership is good for me
Visiting any of the Historic Royal Palaces will undoubtedly involve purchasing an entry ticket. All the Royal Palaces offer individual or combined tickets. 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. I subscribed to the membership prior to my visit to Kensington Palace recently, which you can read here.
HRP Annual Membership
I list the benefits of this annual membership below. I think it is one of the best value for money annual membership there is. Read on and find out. If you disagree with me, let me in the comments below, I would love to hear from you.
So, here are the benefits:
Benefits of the HRP Annual Membership

– Tower of London

2. Access is all throughout the year;
I can explore as many times as I like. As a lover of history, I get to escape to the past and explore history as often as my heart desires.
3. 10% discount;
I enjoy a 10% discount on my cup of coffee after exploring, or any purchases made in their cafes, restaurants and shops.

5. Member Only events
There are exclusive events for Members only such as the experience of an expert’s guide with one of the iconic Yeoman Warders at the Tower of London. Members also get to witness the Ceremony of the Keys, the traditional locking up of the Tower of London. There are more events available throughout the year.
6. 15 months membership for the price of 12
I have the benefit of 15 months membership for the price of 12 because I signed-up with a Direct debit subscription.
7. £53.00 Only
All for the price of £53.00
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 this summer, I think that I could try and plan to do so in the next 15 months.
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.
