Support Us

As stewards of this beautiful and historic place, our primary purpose is

“To conserve The Bishop’s Palace for future generations; welcoming all who seek a place of beauty, reflection and enjoyment”

The cost of maintaining the Palace as a visitor attraction is principally met by Admission tickets, special events and our shop and cafe. But this does not cover the entire cost of everyday maintenance, so donations to this aspect of our work are always welcome.

Likewise, the cost of conservation work cannot be met by admission fees etc. so we rely on voluntary donations to finance this aspect of our work. The annual costs vary between £400,000 and £500,000. So, this is an area where we are looking for donations – large or small, regular or one-off, to enable us to carry out this vital work.

There are various ways to support our work, which are listed below, together with links to enable you to support us with the minimum of effort:

Remembering us in your will
Palace membership
Volunteering your time
Please remember to include your Contact Details in all the above, so that we can comply with legal requirements – and of course thank you for your support.
