Spectacular Light Show at St Paul’s Cathedral
Join us for 'Where Light Falls', a free evening event Thursday 24–Sunday 27 October.
From spring 2020, we’ll be running a series of events and activities to explore personal connections with local places and to inspire everyone to share why they mean so much.
We rescue heritage at risk
Our Heritage at Risk Register gives an annual snapshot of the critical condition of some of the country’s most important historic buildings, sites, monuments and places.
What is 'Heritage at Risk'?
The Heritage at Risk Programme (HAR) identifies the historic sites that are most at risk of being lost as a result of neglect, decay or inappropriate development. Every year Historic England updates the Heritage at Risk Register. The end result is a dynamic picture of the sites most at risk and most in need of safeguarding for the future.Find out more
