Become a patron

By becoming a Patron you will have the opportunity to deepen your interest in our collection and ensure it gets the care it deserves. For those with an interest in arms and armour, this is a matchless opportunity to gain access to acknowledged experts in the subject matter, be guided round parts of the sites and collections not usually accessible to the general public and handle some of the nation’s greatest treasures.

Patrons not only enjoy these privileges but also receive exclusive invitations to dine in impressive surroundings and attend exhibitions and private views as well as Patron-only events.

Our patron packages are designed to bring you closer to the heart of Royal Armouries, our collection and our work across all our sites.

Patrons packages start at £1,000, and offer a range of benefits including:

• Invitations to all Royal Armouries events across our sites
• Access to a specific Patron-only events
• Opportunities to get behind the scenes and up close with the collection
