Legacies are an important foundation of funding for the National Heritage Centre of Horseracing and Sporting Art, and by leaving a gift in your will, no matter what size, you can help to secure the long-term future of Palace House and its excellent work. How the money raised will be used to support our mission are as follows:

  • Providing public programmes of educational and community activities
  • Facilitating research into the history and science of horseracing and sporting art
  • Maintaining a national standard of exhibition displays
  • Preserving the internationally significant collections for future generations to enjoy
  • Ensuring the highest standards of welfare for the horses stabled on-site

Types of legacy - explained

  • Residuary legacy - a gift made from the remainder of your estate after all other gifts and debts have been taken into account. You could choose to leave any fraction of this to Palace House - even as little as 1%.
  • Pecuniary legacy - a gift of a fixed sum of money. Unfortunately the value of this type of gift will decrease over time, due to inflation.
  • Specific legacy - a named item or collection left as a gift in your will, such as a painting, sculpture or books. 

Legal advice

We would always advise you to seek professional guidance when drafting or updating your will. This will ensure that you receive confidential advice and that your will is appropriately tailored to your individual circumstances.
