Our Appeals

Learning Appeal

Together we can inspire a generation to keep England's story alive

Our learning opportunities inspire the next generation by connecting children and young people with England’s story - but to reach every child and young person who could benefit, we urgently need your help.

With your support today, we can continue to provide more hands-on learning opportunities and inspire the next generation to protect England’s story.

Please donate now to help us keep history alive.


Together we can provide more free self-led visits

A donation of £35 could support children’s learning with free resources and self-led visits at sites like Hadrian’s Wall.
Thanks to our supporters and Members, we’re able to provide many of our learning resources and inspiring visits free of charge. As the cost of living crisis continues, providing these free, out-of-classroom experiences has never mattered more. With our current schools programme already oversubscribed, we need your help to make hands-on learning accessible to more children from all communities.

Together we can help more schools access our discovery visits

A gift of £50 could mean more children can experience Medieval life at Dover Castle.
You could help more children experience what life was like in Medieval times by exploring the great tower and taking on the roles of Medieval servants, lords and ladies.

Together we can help more young people to connect with history

By supporting this appeal with an £80 donation, you could help more young people to join our youth engagement programmes.
Our award-winning national Youth Engagement programme, Shout Out Loud, aims to put young people’s ideas and voices at the heart of English Heritage. With your support, more young people could have the chance to dig deeper into their heritage through the arts, explore careers in history and uncover untold stories from our past. 

Please help keep history alive

Please donate today to help make sure as many children as possible benefit from our exciting and award-winning learning programmes. Inspiring the next generation will help keep our rich history alive.

Providing learning opportunities has never been more important

  • “Because of the free educational visits to English Heritage sites, we are able to run our trips in the first place. It enables us to spend our budget on other aspects of the trip.”

    - Teacher feedback, Stonehenge self-led visit

  • “Living history is the best way to learn – by making it real and fun for the children. A visit to Gainsborough Old Hall will last in the memories of the children for many years to come.”

    - Teacher feedback, Discovery Visit

  • “As a young person interested in heritage, it can sometimes feel like you’re the odd one out... I feel incredibly lucky to share my love of history and heritage with others.”
