Dedicating a bench in the Royal Parks

Dedicating a bench is a wonderful way to remember a loved one or celebrate a special occasion while supporting The Royal Parks charity.

Personalising your bench

A limited number of benches become available for dedication across the Royal Parks each year. You will be able to select a location for your bench from those available in your chosen park and create a unique inscription for your bench, which will be engraved on a plaque. Our friendly team will meet you in person to discuss your dedication, show you the locations we have available and support you throughout the dedication process.

How your bench helps take care of the parks

Your dedication will help protect your park and free access to nature in our city. Your generosity could support the playgrounds, ponds, gardens and quiet corners where you and your loved ones have made precious memories, as well as the wildlife, plants and trees that call your park home.

We request £7,500 to dedicate a bench in Richmond Park, Bushy Park or Brompton Cemetery, and £10,000 to dedicate a bench in the Central London parks. We also have opportunities to dedicate backless benches in Bushy Park and Greenwich Park, for which we request a contribution of £5,000. Every dedication lasts for ten years, after which you can choose to renew.

There is currently a very special opportunity to dedicate new benches at the heart of Greenwich Park, next to the park’s world-famous and protected panoramic view of London. We are inviting contributions of £15,000 to dedicate a bench at the viewpoint. Contributions towards these benches will directly support the charity’s Greenwich Park Revealed project, which aims to restore the park’s seventeenth-century landscape, open new community learning facilities and plant 2,000 native, diverse and wildlife-friendly trees and shrubs.

We currently have bench locations available at the following locations:

Brompton Cemetery

Bushy Park

The Green Park

Greenwich Park

Hyde Park

Isabella Plantation and Pembroke Gardens, Richmond Park

St. James's Park
