organisation profile

There is no organisation in the world quite like The Crown Estate.

With a property portfolio encompassing many of the UK’s cityscapes, ancient forests, farms, parkland, coastline and communities, The Crown Estate’s role as employer, influencer, manager, guardian, facilitator and revenue creator is unique.

We have two main objectives: to benefit the taxpayer by paying the revenue from our assets directly to the Exchequer; and to enhance the value of the estate and the income it generates.

Our portfolio has a value of over £7 billion, demanding the utmost in professionalism and efficiency from our staff and management to create added value for everyone – the people, businesses and communities who deal with us, and the nation as a whole.

The estate extends throughout Britain - from beef farms in the north of Scotland to Portland stone mining in Dorset, from offices in the West End to affordable homes in the East End, from forests in the West Country to parkland in Windsor. It also includes significant London holdings, particularly in Regent Street, Regent's Park and St James's.
110,000 hectares of agricultural land. Also extensive marine assets throughout the UK, including 55% of the foreshore and all the seabed out to the 12 nautical miles limit.
The role of The Crown Estate has never been more important than it is today.
