Gifts in Wills


We’re offering all of our supporters a free will writing service through Make A Will Online. They’re members of the Society of Will Writers, and every will is checked by a fully qualified UK solicitor.

Start writing your will now, or find out more about the offer below.

Write your will for free


Using the free service is easy – just go to and answer a straightforward set of questions. You’ll be able to review your answers before you submit them, and once it’s ready you’ll get your will by email, with full instructions on what to do next. We’ll cover the cost of the service.

When you make your will using this link, Make a Will tell us about the existence of the will and the details any gift you make to us. No other information will be shared with us, although you can choose to let us know your name and contact details.

Understanding more about the gift you intend to give helps us plan our important conservation work. And if we know your name and contact details, we can invite you to our annual event for all our legacy supporters.

Of course, you may want to keep your gift completely confidential, which you can do at We will pay for the will (£40 per will) and you can make a donation to cover this payment at the end of the process.

Whatever you choose, thank you for remembering us in your will. Your support will help keep the story of England alive for future generations to enjoy.


Make a Will in-person

If your estate is above the inheritance tax threshold, if you have complex needs or if you would simply prefer speak with someone in person, you can find a solicitor near you through the Law Society website.

When you discuss your gift with your solicitor, you can give them these details:

Full name: The English Heritage Trust

Charity number: 1140351

Registered address: English Heritage, 6th Floor, 100 Wood Street, London, EC2V 7AN.

Letting Us Know

We understand that the contents of your Will are a private matter. However, should you wish to let us know of your intention to leave a gift to English Heritage, we would like to thank you for your support. To show our appreciation, we invite those who have pledged a gift in their Will to special events at one of our properties each year. If you would like to take part in these events and keep in touch, please print, complete and return this Letting Us Know form to let us know of your intention to leave us a gift in your Will, or contact our Legacy Manager.
