What's open?

In England and Northern Ireland, gardens, parks and countryside remain open for local exercise. The safety of our staff, volunteers and visitors from the nearby community remains our priority and we urge you to book your visits in advance and stay local. Please always check the property webpage of the place you wish to visit before you travel.

What's closed and what's reopening?

Following the latest government announcement around the easing of restrictions in England, we plan to open indoor places from 17 May, if government guidance allows it. Cafés are currently takeaway only and we're planning to offer outdoor seating from 12 April, with inside seating available from 17 May. Shops are currently closed with some due to reopen from 12 April.

All National Trust in Wales places are currently closed in line with Welsh government restrictions. In Northern Ireland, houses, shops and visitor centres are closed and cafés are takeaway only.

Pink apple blossom

Helping communities blossom 

We’re working with partners so urban communities can share in the joy of spring blossom, which has become a symbol of hope. During the next five years, circles of blossom trees will be planted in towns and cities across England, Northern Ireland and Wales, creating spaces for people to come together and take in the beauty of the season. We hope to create a British equivalent of Japan’s ‘Hanami’, the popular custom of enjoying the transient beauty of flowers.
