Life membership

Spring visitors at Greenway, Devon

With National Trust life membership there are 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.

Visiting this spring 

Our gardens, parks and countryside locations are open. Cafés are offering a takeaway service and some outdoor seating is available at cafés in England only. Some shops are open in England and Wales but remain closed in Northern Ireland. All houses are currently closed. The safety of our staff, volunteers and visitors remains our priority. To avoid disappointment please book in advance, especially at busier times such as weekends and bank holidays. Please check the property webpage before you visit and follow government guidance.
