The London Centre
This section of the page features an image gallery, so if you're using a screen reader you may wish to jump to the main content.
The London Centre was founded in 1951 (second only to Manchester) and currently has 170 members drawn from across London and surrounding areas.
Our objectives are to promote and prosper the work of the National Trust both nationally and in the London and South East area and to promote social activities to make membership more enjoyable. We have recently amended our Constitution to make it possible for those who are not National Trust members or volunteers to join London Centre and take part in our activities and so support the Trust.
As you will see from the programme, our main activities are visits by public transport to places of interest in and around London; coach trips to National Trust and other properties and an annual holiday.
We also arrange fortnightly rambles (normally no more than six miles and often with an opportunity to break away early).
Although we seldom organise purely social events, the visits frequently and the rambles always offer the opportunity to lunch together.
Our main fundraising comes from the surplus arising from events and this enables us to contribute annually to national and regional appeals.
