We actively manage a UK real estate portfolio to create brilliant places for our customers, partners and communities.
What we do
The Crown Estate is a business with a distinct heritage and unique portfolio. It includes some of London’s best places to work, shop and experience, regional retail and leisure destinations, and a substantial rural portfolio.
We manage the seabed and half the foreshore around England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and play a fundamental role in the sustainable development of this national asset, including the UK’s world-leading offshore wind. We are also custodians of the Windsor Estate, including the world‑renowned Windsor Great Park.
Established by an Act of Parliament, we are tasked with generating profit for the Treasury for the benefit of the nation’s finances. This has totalled £2.9bn over the last ten years.
How we do it
In everything we do, we are driven by a clear purpose: to create lasting and shared prosperity for the nation.
Delivering our purpose means that we will focus on creating meaningful and lasting financial, social and environmental value, both today, and for future generations.
We have a talented team of around 450 people, all committed to creating lasting and shared prosperity for the nation.
