Members' Panel

What is the members' panel?

The Members' Panel is relaunching, and we're on the hunt for our new recruits!

The Members' Panel will be a small but diverse group of adventurous and enthusiastic English Heritage Members – of all ages and backgrounds – who we'll be recruiting to the role of 'English Heritage Members' panellist'.

From exclusive previews to action-packed family activities and events, our Members' Panel will be making the most of their membership and keeping us informed of their adventures along the way.

English Heritage Member, Thomas Taylor, was motivated to join English Heritage by the broad range of sites he could visit with his membership which fuel his passion for history, "They've all got a story to tell, and they all tell England's story, bit by bit."

Watch our videos to discover how Members like Thomas make the most of their membership.


    Meet English Heritage Member Tamsin Partridge, along with her husband Jon, son Harry and dog Buddy, on a family day out at Kenilworth Castle and Elizabethan Garden, to discover what keeps them coming back to this palace 'fit for a queen'.


    Join Members Maria and Nick Broad on a day out at Audley End House and Gardens, to find out what made them fall in love with this opulent Jacobean mansion house over 18 years ago – and what keeps them coming back every year.


    We asked some of our Members to explain what makes a battle re-enactment event an unforgettable day out and why they would recommend going to one - from the feeling of being transported back in time, to the opportunity of experiencing history first hand.


    We asked a selection of our Members to explain how our sites and events help to nurture a life-long passion for the past. Don't forget you can take up to six children under 19 for free with every adult Member to visit our properties.
