Gift Aid It

Bath Preservation Trust is a registered charity and you can support our charitable aims through Gift Aid. Under the Gift Aid scheme, instead of paying an admission charge, you can now donate the same amount.

When you donate, you will be asked to confirm whether or not you are a UK taxpayer. Tax can only be reclaimed on donations made by individuals who pay UK income or capital gains tax at least equal to the amount reclaimed on their donations in the current tax year.

We can then recover tax on your donation. To us, that’s worth an extra 25p for every £1 you give. All you need to do is complete a simple declaration when you arrive. To help in this way you must be a UK taxpayer. Your details will remain confidential.

This support will help preserve No.1 for future generations.

No. 1 Royal Crescent allows visitors to look beyond the Royal Crescent’s world famous Palladian facade and see what life was like for the wealthy and their servants in 18th century Bath.

There is so much to explore at this multi award winning museum and many of our visitors love what they have seen and learnt and have generously donated to the continued development of the museum.

As well as running No. 1 Royal Crescent and three other museums whose collections help explain why the Georgian era is such a key period in the city’s history, we also run a highly successful education programme, which recently earned a prestigious Sandford Award, and undertake vital campaigning work to protect the status of the World Heritage city.  And we do all of this with no assistance from public funding which is why ongoing financial support is essential. Your donation is therefore vital to help us with our work.

If you prefer, donations can be made by cheque or through CAF.  Some of our supporters generously make a regular donation through a direct debit and if you would like to know more about this, please contact Bath Preservation Trust by phone on 01225 338727 or email

However you choose to support us, please remember to Gift Aid it.  Pledging Gift Aid will cost you nothing and it allows Bath Preservation Trust to reclaim tax at the current basic rate.

Gifts in wills, or as a memorial, are also very important and have made a substantial difference to Bath Preservation Trust.  If you would like to know more, please click here or contact our office for a confidential discussion.

We greatly appreciate all the donations we receive. They make an immediate difference to our work, and we’re very grateful to our many supporters who have helped us over the past 80 years.
