Since 1994 we have awarded almost £3.2bn to nearly 15,000 projects in London & South.

From the bustling streets of the UK's historic capital to the idyllic coves of Cornwall's outstandingly beautiful coastline, London & South is rich in heritage. We’re proud to play a role in protecting and celebrating the region's vibrant cities, beautiful landscapes, historic sites and diverse cultures.

Why not explore some of the projects, organisations and communities we have supported below.

London & South covers everything from Cape Cornwall to the White Cliffs of Dover; the Cotswolds Hills to London’s Southbank. This diverse region includes London, the South East and South West. Within this we support projects that connect people and communities to national, regional and local heritage. ​

For Hertfordshire and Essex, please see the Midlands & East page.

Our grants programmes offer funding from £3,000 to £5million. If you have an idea for a project in London & South, we’d love to hear from you. ​

We are prioritising six outcomes for heritage projects to respond to the COVID-19 context: skills and jobs, inclusion, organisational resilience, better places, the economy and wellbeing.​
