Hampton Court Castle has been shaped throughout its history by its various owners. Many served as wonderful custodians, transforming the Castle and ensuring its survival. We are proud of the visible legacy these families have left which, taken together, tell the story of the Castle’s history.
We know the value of Hampton Court Castle to the community and cannot continue to leave its fate to the ebb and flow of wealthy individuals. Our mission is to use its incredible resources to create wonderful experiences and treasured memories for as many people as possible – enabling the estate to sustainably support itself and ensure its own long-term future.
To achieve this, we must create an ongoing culture of custodianship, where all of us share our Custodian Values of being proud, protective and progressive.
We are Proud of the Castle’s diverse history and the personal connections that so many people have to it.
We are Protective of the Castle’s long-term future – respecting its inherent fragility, shielding it from harm, and always working in harmony with its history and natural environment.
We are Progressive in our approach to adopting new ideas and ways of working, and take deliberate action to widen the estate’s appeal and make it more accessible.
