Educational Group Membership
Education Group Membership is specially designed to allow education groups free entry to most places owned by the National Trust. This type of membership is for not-for-profit groups or home educators whose members, pupils or students are in full-time education.
Benefits of Education Group Memberships
Education group members receive free entry to National Trust places during published opening times. Where special education activities are offered by a place, additional charges may apply.
You will also receive:
- The annual Members’ Handbook
- The Trust's membership mailings three times a year, with our magazine
- Free planning and preparation visits for group leaders - these preliminary visits should be booked in advance
We are pleased to extend Education Group Membership to home-educating families, so that home-educated children have access to the same discounted entrance arrangements as traditional schools.
So that we can distinguish between this membership category and our standard family membership, home-educating families using their Education Group Membership are entitled to visit in normal school hours during school term time only. We are unable to extend this membership category to cover visits made by home-educating families during bank holidays, weekends or school holidays.
