Other staff members sacked include employees at The Tower of London, Hampton Court and Hillsborough Castle.
It is reported that of the 17 staff members who were sacked, one was dismissed for fraud, while two lost jobs for harassment. Other reasons include theft or failure to follow procedure.
“In common with all responsible employers, we have a performance framework and code of conduct in place to guide our staff to deliver the highest possible standards of service to our visitors,” a spokesperson for the Historic Royal Palaces charity told Daily Mail.
“As an organisation with over 1,000 employees, we occasionally need to instigate disciplinary proceedings when these standards are not met.
“This is always a regrettable, but thankfully rare occurrence. We are proud to hold Gold Investors in People status.”
