Joining from the USA

If you're interested in becoming a member, but live in the USA, take a look at the Royal Oak Foundation. As our US membership affiliate, they help us continue our work. Members of the foundation receive tax deductions for their support and help the organisation make grants towards our work.

Visiting this spring 

In England and Northern Ireland, gardens, parks and countryside sites remain open and cafés are takeaway only. Shops, houses and other indoor areas are currently closed. In Wales, coast and countryside car parks have reopened and from 29 March, we’ll begin to reopen gardens and outdoor spaces for Welsh residents. The safety of our staff, volunteers and visitors from the nearby community remains our priority. We strongly advise booking your visits in advance, especially over Easter when places may be very busy. Please check the property webpage before you travel and follow government guidance on travel.
