New membership FAQs
Thinking about becoming a member? Here are the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions.
When I join, what will I receive and by when?
Once you’ve joined the National Trust, your welcome pack will arrive within 21 days. It contains everything you need – including your membership card(s). In the meantime, you can start visiting with a temporary card that we’ll email to you.
Do you offer discounts on memberships?
As a charity, we don't offer general discounts on membership. Your membership helps us to look after over 500 special places across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Now, more than ever, we need your support to continue to invest in our ongoing conservation work, guaranteeing that your favourite places are here for generations to come.
However, if you join online and pay for your membership by Annual Direct Debit, you do get a free pair of binoculars. We also offer a senior concession on membership renewals to those members aged 60 and over, who have been a member for at least five years in the last ten.
Which children can be included on a family membership?
All children for whom you have parental responsibility or who are living with you, including children you are fostering or who are placed with you for adoption. Grandchildren can also be included on family memberships.
