We are immensely grateful to the National Lottery Heritage Fund and to all our other funders for their contribution to help us create the visitor attraction you see today. Now, as an independent charity, we must be self-sufficient, generating enough annual income to cover the substantial costs of maintaining and running this wonderful heritage attraction.

When you donate to Hartlebury Castle you are directly contributing to the charity which is fighting to preserve it.  Your donation helps us to keep the Castle open and look after its collections, so that visitors can learn its fascinating history and enjoy its peaceful grounds. Every penny goes towards maintaining and preserving this slice of history for future generations.

* Fundraising, payments and donations will be processed and administered by the National Funding Scheme, operating as DONATE, a charity registered in England and Wales (1149800) and Scotland (SC045106). In addition to any text donation, you will incur your standard network message charge (based on your service provider rates). For Terms & Conditions, see
