Hampstead Centre

Visitors looking round the garden at Fenton House and Garden, London.

The Hampstead Centre draws its members mainly from Hampstead, Camden, Highgate and surrounding north London areas and is open to National Trust members and volunteers. It is a lovely opportunity to socialise while making the best use of your National Trust membership on our arranged visits to National Trust properties.

We actively support the National Trust with our events, aiming to make a modest profit enabling us to support the Trust’s various project appeals.
In spring and summer we organise coach visits to country houses and gardens. In winter we visit places of interest in and around London and hold monthly afternoon talks. We issue our Newsletter three times a year with details of upcoming events.
Annual subscription is £5.00 and £1.00 for each additional member living at the same address.


During the winter months we arrange a monthly afternoon talk, usually illustrated, followed by refreshments in Pax Lodge, convenient for public transport. We also organise visits to places of interest in and around London.  From spring through summer we organise outings by coach to country houses, gardens and other places of historic interest. The coach leaves from Belsize Park, very close to the tube station. We try to ensure there is time to enjoy lunch at the venue or arrange another suitable stop.
