Charity and Not for Profit
The Crown Estate is a unique business with a distinct heritage and a portfolio unlike any other. It includes some of central London’s best places to work, shop and spend time, retail and leisure destinations across the country, and a substantial rural portfolio. As manager of the seabed and half the foreshore around England, Wales and Northern Ireland, The Crown Estate plays a role in the UK’s world-leading offshore wind sector as well as marine aggregates, cables and pipelines. They are also responsible for the Windsor Estate, including the world-renowned Windsor Great Park.
In 1961, the Crown Estate Act established the organisation as an independent commercial business and tasked them with returning all profit to the Treasury. Over the last ten years The Crown Estate has generated £2.9 billion for the benefit of the nation’s finances.
