Tickets purchased directly from Royal Collection Trust can be converted into a 1-Year Pass, giving 12 months’ complimentary admission to the site(s) you have visited. This pass is valid for a year from the date of your first visit.
Enjoy free re-admission for a year by asking us to treat your ticket purchase as a donation.
- Before you leave the site, please sign and print your name in the spaces provided on the reverse of your ticket.
- Hand the ticket to a member of staff, who will stamp and validate it.
- Retain your ticket for future visits.
- Your ticket will only be accepted for re-admission if it has been stamped and signed on the day of your first visit.
Your signed and stamped original ticket (now your 1-Year Pass) must be produced on arrival at the ticket counter to enable you to book an admission ticket. You will also be required to provide proof of signature, such as a passport, driving licence, credit or debit card. You will then be given a complimentary ticket for admission on that day, subject to availability. Children under the age of 18 are not required to show proof of signature.
Alternatively, you may pre-book your subsequent visits by telephoning the Ticket Sales and Information Office, +44 (0)303 123 7334. Please note that a transaction fee of £2.00 is payable on all telephone bookings. Pre-booked tickets will not be posted to you, but can be collected from the ticket counter on the day of your visit on production of your signed and stamped 1-Year Pass and proof of signature.

The benefits of the 1-Year Pass are not transferable, and your ticket may not under any circumstances be given to another person or re-sold. Any attempted use of the ticket by another party to gain admission automatically renders the ticket void.
