Become a patron

Become a Patron and get closer to history

The Royal Armouries is the guardian of the United Kingdom’s national collection of arms and armour. We are a charity, and Patrons play a vital role in supporting our work.


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.

We have three levels of patronage to choose from, each of which is designed to bring you closer to the heart of Royal Armouries, our collection and our work across all our sites.

Patrons packages range from £1,000 to £5,000 and offer a range of benefits across three levels:

• 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

Support us as a Major Donor

The support we receive from our Major Donors is vital to Royal Armouries continuing development and success.
