What do they do?

English Heritage understand the importance of England's rich history. They work to raise awareness and keep access open to more than 400 places of significant historical interest and advise the government and other bodies on how to protect these inspirational sites for the enjoyment of generations to come.

More than 11 million people visit their properties every year, and to date, their members number almost 750,000.

They also are keen on opening their properties for free to educational bodies and accommodate almost half a million free visits for education each year.

They also provide grants to help people who manage historical sites to help them maintain and care for them as well as for helping them to raise awareness and understanding of the importance of conservation of these special places.

Some of the famous sites they manage include:

  • Stonehenge
  • Avebury
  • Arthur's Stone

Items you can buy in the shop

When you go to the English Heritage Shop website it immediately looks compelling and you can see they have put a lot of thought into making the layout easy for the user.

The top navigation is divided into the following categories:

  • Books
  • CDs and DVDs
  • Collectors
  • Garden
  • Homewares
  • Jewellery
  • Food and drink
  • Stationary
  • Toys and games
  • Clothes
  • Gift ideas

There is also a nice large image carousel that showcases their special offers and new ranges of items they wish to promote. The pictures are bright and vibrant and defintely make the products look enticing.

After the carousel there are for picture-led scrolling bars that show items from the books, tapestries, jewellery and toys and games categories.

We had a scoot around the toys and games section and the products do look really good quality, unique and fun. There's lots of wooden items which we think feel so much nicer as toys for children.

Likewise in terms of uniqueness and quality, a look around the garden and homewares section revealed just an impressive spread. From gothic-style plant pot holder to classic looking outdoor hanging clocks - there are load of items we have never seen before.
