Interested in making the most of your National Trust membership? Why not join your local supporter group in London and the South East?
It's a great way to meet people and to enjoy special talks, visits, holidays and other social and fundraising events.
You'll also be helping a great cause.
There are holiday cottages for you to enjoy across the South East from a lighthouse keepers cottage in Kent to garden retreats in Sussex. And every time you stay, you're supporting our conservation work too. How good is that?
