Heritage Insurance

We have designed three flexible insurance products to support the broad and sometimes varying challenges facing the heritage sector.

Heritage insurance is not just confined to listed buildings, (although we do insure more Grade I listed buildings that any other insurer). We insure a wide range of properties from iconic buildings to small independent museums and businesses based in heritage sites. 

We define heritage as including buildings, artefacts, monuments, sites, or activities that have archaeological, historical, architectural, cultural, engineering or scientific significance. In short, wherever the heritage status of the building is fundamental to the business.

This means we include buildings of modern or unusual design, as well as buildings with architectural merit. 

Our three products.

  • Arts and Culture

    + -
    For organisations that provide a platform for the enjoyment of artistic and social activities, beliefs, values and/or traditions.

  • Historic Britain

    + -
    For the protection of buildings that contribute to the UK’s heritage legacy such as historic houses, estates, castles and palaces.

  • Heritage Business and Leisure

    + -
    To support owner occupied businesses that are heritage in operation or located within a building of historic or architectural significance.

Resources and risk management

From prospecting to pitching we can work closely with you to tailor support packages that help you win new Heritage business.

In addition to providing your clients with specialist cover at competitive prices, we offer a range of services to help protect them and support you, including:

    All fine art, whether contemporary or traditional, is unique and needs an experienced insurer who understands the specific needs and risks associated with fine art and antique insurance.
