English Heritage

CSSC is pleased to confirm that there are no plans for the withdrawal of its current corporate membership with English Heritage.

English Heritage has now become a charity with an ambitious aim to become self-sufficient within the next 8 years, so the support from their Corporate Members is more vital than ever before.

Your Corporate Membership benefits remain unchanged and English Heritage's new charitable status has had no effect on our Corporate Membership Scheme. You can still enjoy the same benefits as before, including; free entry to over 300 sites for two adults and up to six children, as well as 15% off our online and on site shops. 

Simply present your CSSC card and a form of ID at EH sites included in the programme to gain free entry for yourself, one other adult and accompanying children (max 6).

For more details and to check if a site is included in the programme please visit: www.english-heritage.org.uk or phone +44 (0) 370 333 1181 / email: customers@english-heritage.org.uk.

England's castles have survived centuries of warfare and destruction, but today they are under attack again. You can help defend them!

England’s castles are places where the story of England was forged, and where it can be retold. Urgent conservation work is needed at many of our castles, including Carisbrooke Castle on the Isle of Wight, Pevensey Castle in East Sussex, and Dover Castle in Kent, to protect them from destruction caused by invasive plants, pollution, severe weather and the ravages of time. You and other CSSC members can help defend them by donating to our Defend our Castles Crowdfunder today.
