Royal Collection Trust is investing £37 million at Windsor Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse in a series of projects that will transform the experience of visiting these royal residences. 

Collectively known as Future Programme, the projects will deliver significant improvements to the way visitors are welcomed on arrival, create new Learning Centres and visitor facilities, open up new spaces and renew displays of works of art from the Royal Collection.

Work began in 2017 and is proceeding in several phases over a period of approximately two years. Both Palaces remain open to visitors throughout the developments.

Keep up to date with developments and read about the history of the Palaces


Since the 11th century, successive kings and queens have made their mark on the fabric of Windsor Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse. Discover how the Palaces have developed, through gothic transformations, baroque refurbishments and Victorian modernisations, in these timelines.


Funded by The Royal Collection Trust, Future Programme is part of the continuing investment by the charity in the presentation and interpretation of the royal Palaces and the Royal Collection. It follows the creation of The Queen’s Galleries at Buckingham Palace and the Palace of Holyroodhouse, which opened in 2002.
