Senior membership

Senior couple in garden

To say a big thank you to our loyal members and to make sure everybody can continue to enjoy the places they love, we offer a 25 per cent senior concession. We currently give nearly one million senior members a concession of 25 per cent off our adult rates.

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.

If you’re 60 or over and you’ve held an individual or joint membership for at least five of the last ten years, you’ll be eligible for the reduced fee.

You’ll pay £54 for an individual senior membership and if you hold a joint senior membership it’s £90.

To let us know you’d like the concession, please call 0344 800 1895.

If you pay by Direct Debit, make sure you give us a ring before your next payment date.

Why not update the price automatically?

Everybody is different, so we like to give you the power to make decisions about your membership.

For every person who is happy and able to decline the discount, the places we look after will benefit from at least £15 extra. This could help a ranger maintain 28 metres of coastline a year.

Every penny matters to our dedicated staff and volunteers. In 2019, we spent £148.4m on conservation, including £112.7m looking after historic buildings, collections and gardens, plus £35.7m on coast and countryside.

Your membership matters

The most important thing for us is to make sure you can afford to continue your membership and that’s why we’re happy to be able to offer you this concession.
