The National Trust is one of the most valued organisations in the UK for the work that it does to preserve special places for people to enjoy for generations to come. You can visit National Trust sites all over the UK to experience historical buildings, impressive gardens and unique landscapes while supporting their upkeep. We are going to highlight just 5 of the many reasons you should join the National Trust today!
5 reasons to join the National Trust
1. Freedom to explore
A National Trust membership opens up access to over 500 places that you can visit at any time. This freedom to explore will mean that you actually end up going to places that you have always talked about and visiting places you never knew existed. Whether you are looking for a remote spot to unwind or to discover historical stories, this membership opens up the possibility of that for you every day of the year!
2. Food is on the menu
You can turn your membership in to a culinary tour of the country. Feast on pies, salads, roasts and more local fare that is grown on the land that you are visiting. Take a quick look at the National Trust website and you will be able to see what delights await you on arrival at one of their sites. Sustainable and delicious; what is there not to love?
3. Family time
Whether it be taking your kids on an adventure or a reason to meet up with parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts and others then the National Trust provides you the perfect excuse to meet. Activities, cafes, restaurants, walks, tours and more mean that whatever the pace of day you are looking for, you can find it. See the website and welcome pack to mark your calendar for special events that you can freely take part in and look forward to spending more time with your family.
Parking is free at nearly all of the places that the National Trust look after so it couldn’t be easier to organise a place to meet and experience with loved ones.
4. Giving something back
The National Trust is a charity and it relies on memberships and donations to fund the upkeep of 300 houses & gardens, 257,000 hectares of land and 775 miles of coastline. Your membership makes a big difference and you also start to appreciate the environment more. Many members end up repairing footpaths as they go or joining in on conservation projects. It’s a labour of love for those who have the time and ability to do their bit.
5. It’s cheaper than you think
You can get a monthly membership for £5.75 a month. Swap out the price of a couple of coffees and you will have your green pass! Junior members can join for £10 and seniors get discounts too. Take a look at the membership options to see which one suits you and be prepared to be surprised!
If you have a love or urge to explore and want to contribute to the incredible work of the National Trust so that future generations can enjoy the historic buildings and land then joining the National Trust is the place to start.
