Loan Costs

Before requesting a loan all borrowers should consider various factors, such as packing, transportation and costs, which may include the cost of a loan inspection for longer loans.


We may ask you to pay for or reimburse costs associated with the loan. The Royal Armouries also charges a loan administration fee for overseas loans and loans to private UK museums or commercial institutions.

The following list shows examples of the types of costs that may be involved:

Some venues will be charged for staff time.

The borrower must also insure each loan object for the value given by the Royal Armouries.

For travelling exhibitions, whether in the UK or overseas, the borrower must pay for courier travel and expenses from and to the Royal Armouries and between venues.
