Gift membership

Visitors sitting beneath a Magnolia tree on the Lawn, Nymans, West Sussex, in April

Whether it's sweeping views of coast and country, space to stop and breathe in a floral garden or the feeling of discovering hidden secrets in historical homes, we know some things are impossible to wrap.

Treat special someone to a whole year of unforgettable moments with National Trust membership.

Plus, we’ll send you a pair of binoculars when you pay by annual Direct Debit.

Visiting this spring 

Our gardens, parks, cafés, shops and countryside locations are open to visit. Subject to government confirmation, we're planning to reopen houses in England and Wales from 17 May, and in Northern Ireland from 24 May. Advance booking for visits helps us keep everyone safe and socially distanced. At quieter times such as weekdays, booking shouldn't be necessary, but to guarantee entry we recommend booking in advance, especially at weekends and bank holidays. Please check the property webpage before you visit and follow government guidance.
