Reopening update

We’re reopening the places you love, gradually, safely and in line with government advice. ​

We've already opened more than 200 National Trust coast and countryside car parks in England and Northern Ireland. From 3 June, we’re opening a small number of gardens and parklands in England and Northern Ireland through advance bookings. ​

We can’t open everywhere at once and we’ll open more places in the coming weeks. For now, houses remain closed and all places in Wales remain closed following Welsh Government advice.​

For many of these places, you’ll need to book your visit in advance. You’ll be able to book your visit to National Trust gardens and parklands from 29 May.​

Follow the links below to find out what’s open, how to book, and what to expect from your visit. Please always check before you travel. Thanks for your patience and support, we can’t wait to welcome you back.
