Leave a Legacy

One of the most important ways to support the Museum is remembering Bentley Priory Museum in your will.

A legacy of any size is an invaluable means of ensuring that the Museum continues to tell the important history of Bentley Priory.

Where your legacy will go

Legacies are most beneficial to the Museum when they are gifted to be used  by the Museum for our general work and to meet our objectives. This means we can use your kind gift where the need is greatest, from improving our exhibition galleries to planting in the garden.

Legacies & Inheritance

Bentley Priory Museum is a charity, so legacies made to the Museum are exempt from inheritance tax.

Since April 2012, if you decide to leave 10% or more of your estate to charity, the amount of inheritance tax paid on the estate will be reduced.
