About Us

Everywhere we look, history surrounds us. English Heritage champions our historic places and advises the Government and others to help today's generation get the best out of our heritage and ensure that it is protected for future generations. Find out more »

How we are run

The Commission is the governing board and establishes our overall strategic direction.

The Executive Board runs the organisation from day-to-day.

See our response to the Department for Culture, Media and Sport's public consultation on the exciting proposals to create a new charity arm for English Heritage.
