Life membership

Family on the blue cycle trail at Nostell

With National Trust life membership there’s more than 500 special places to explore. Although right now you may not be able to enjoy all that we have to offer, you can look forward to a lifetime of benefits. Green gardens bursting with colour, historical castles and houses with stories to tell and cycle trails that lead you down an undiscovered path – you never know which place will win your heart.

And, thanks to the money from your membership we’ll be able to keep these places special for everyone, for ever.
