Join at Charlecote

Pop into Visitor Reception in the car park at Charlecote (or your favourite National Trust property near you) to ask one of the team about joining.  You can start making memories and protecting places from the moment you join.

If you join at Charlecote you’ll be contributing directly towards our current conservation projects, wildlife in the parkland and caring for our collection in the house.

If you're not local to Charlecote or would like to start supporting us today, you can purchase membership for you and your family or as a gift online.

What is the National Trust?

The National Trust is Europe’s largest conservation charity.

With your help, we look after over 500 special places across Great Britain, including eight of the UK’s recognised UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Your visits help the work we do to protect and preserve historic places and precious outdoor spaces - for ever, for everyone.

Did you know we’ve been a charity since 1895? Founder Octavia Hill said “…the need of quiet, the need of air, and I believe the sight of sky and of things growing, seem human needs, common to all men.”

Why your membership matters

As an independent charity we receive no government funding. We rely solely on your donations and memberships, to help us continue protecting some of the UK’s best-loved places.

Conservation is at the heart of everything we do. In 2017/18 we spent £138.4m on the conservation of our houses, gardens, parks, coastline and countryside. Find out why this matters.

Once you become a member, it doesn’t just stop with that initial donation. Did you know, your membership card carries on donating to your favourite places?

Each time you visit one of our places and your membership card is scanned, that property receives £2.56 from a central pot to help fund their vital conservation work. Your membership goes straight to the places you love.
