The Heritage Alliance unites over 100 independent heritage organisations in England as a powerful, effective and independent advocate for heritage.

As England’s biggest coalition of heritage interests we bring together independent heritage organisations from the National Trust, English Heritage, Canal & River Trust and Historic Houses Association, to more specialist bodies representing visitors, owners, volunteers, professional practitioners, funders and educationalists. Our members’ 6.3 million volunteers, trustees, members and staff demonstrate the strength and commitment of the independent heritage movement. Join us today.
