Plymouth Centre

The front of the house at Saltram

The National Trust Plymouth Centre was formed in 1967, as a voluntary Association of National Trust members and has a present membership of around 210 members, drawn mainly from the Plymouth area, but extending into the South Hams and across the county border to the Saltash area of Cornwall.

What we do

Our aim is to promote and support the work of the National Trust in this area. We are always delighted to welcome new members and look forward to meeting you soon. When funds allow, we give grants to our local National Trust properties, especially Saltram, and other National Trust ventures, amounting to well over £100,000 since we were formed.

Getting out and about

We organise monthly Talks during the Autumn and Winter on various topics of interest, e.g. 'Crossing the Laira', and 'Mrs Ronnie – The Royal Marchmaker'. In the Spring and Summer there are monthly coach trips to various National Trust properties and other places of interest. We pick up from Roborough Park and Ride, Outland Road Park and Ride, the coach stop on Derry's Cross roundabout, and the George Hotel Plympton. Social events, such as lunches, are also arranged for our members.

Due to government advice, we have postponed our events programme. We will update this section in due course.


Members receive a Spring and Autumn Newsletter keeping them informed of National Trust Plymouth Centre events and also giving details of happenings at the National Trust properties of Saltram, Buckland Abbey and Cotehele. The annual membership fees are £4 for a single person and £6 for a couple or two people living at the same address.

Some of our members provide Volunteer Support as Room Guides at local National Trust properties.
