We're starting to open some gardens and parklands in England and Northern Ireland at reduced capacity, through advance bookings every week. Most places up to 8 June have sold out. 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. All houses remain closed for now and all places in Wales remain closed following Welsh Government advice. Read this article to find out what's open and what to expect from your visit.
One of the sure signs that spring is underway in the South East is the uplifting appearance of blossom on trees and shrubs in gardens, streets and hedgerows heralding the arrival of the brighter, milder spring weather. If you're out for a walk from home hoping to see blossom, please follow the government social distancing advice.
There are loads of friendly National Trust supporter groups in the Thames Valley. They help support our places like Stowe, Hughenden and Greys Court by volunteering and fundraising. They also get together for fun days out, holidays and lectures.
