We're reopening the places you love, gradually, safely and in line with government advice.
We're starting to open some gardens and parklands in England and Northern Ireland through advance bookings. We're opening these places at a reduced capacity to ensure the safety of our visitors and staff, and places have reached capacity very quickly. New tickets are released every Friday and we'll continue to add new places over the coming weeks.
More than 200 coast and countryside car parks are now open. For now, houses remain closed and all places in Wales remain closed following Welsh Government advice.
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.
Support special places with National Trust membership. You can help to protect and maintain these places – for everyone, for ever.
People’s access to nature and beauty matters now more than ever, but our income has dropped sharply. Please give what you can to help our essential work.
Tea time in our collections
This delightful Meissen Berlin tea service dates back to the 1740s, and is part of the collection at Kedleston Hall, Derbyshire. The set is painted with miners in wooded landscape vignettes.
This rare pair of polychrome teapots at Wallington, Northumberland, have an exquisite standard of workmanship. They were made at Het Moriaenshooft factory in Delft, 1686-8, copying a style of teapots imported from Yixing, China.
By the 18th century novelty teapots had made an appearance. The collection at Treasurer's House, North Yorkshire includes this cauliflower teapot. It was made around 1760 by the Wedgwood factory.
Polesden Lacey's Tea Room
Dame Margaret ‘Maggie’ Greville (1863-1942) was a famed society hostess. She refurbished Polesden Lacey to her own luxurious tastes and included an elegant Tea Room. Her highly fashionable afternoon teas were attended by the aristocracy, statesmen and royalty.
Killerton’s extensive fashion collection includes this delicate white tea gown from the early 1900s. Loosing-fitting and lightweight, it would have been perfect for summer parties.
In the 18th century, lockable tea caddies made an appearance in the homes of the wealthy. They were often made of expensive wood and elaborately decorated, such as this mahogany example from A La Ronde, Devon.
