English Heritage works with a number of carefully selected partners to produce ranges of high-quality licensed products. Working with our curators and extensive collections, our license partners create distinctive, commercially successful products that embody the best of the English Heritage brand.
Benefits and Opportunities
Our licensing partners benefit from association with a trusted national brand that stands for quality and authenticity, as well as speaking to our audience of millions. Becoming a licensing partner gives companies the opportunity to draw inspiration from our beautiful sites and collections to create unique ranges, gain access to advice from expert curators, receive bespoke PR and marketing support, and stage exclusive photo shoots and product launches at our stunning properties.
To enable the long-term success of the brand licensing programme at English Heritage, we have appointed a strategic licensing boutique, Golden Goose, to manage our portfolio of licensees across all categories. Golden Goose are experts in their field and they bring a wealth of experience and enthusiasm to create the highest quality heritage-inspired products. If you’re interested in collaborating with English Heritage, get in touch and we will introduce you to our Account Manager at Golden Goose.
