Tenants

Tenants can benefit from free access to our places with a tenant pass. It is available to most of our residential, commercial and agricultural tenants.

Each year, you’ll receive our Handbook, car sticker, three editions of our Magazine and regional newsletters, as well as a card which allows the tenant, one other adult and their children (under 18) free entry to most of our places in England, Wales and Northern Ireland during normal opening times. It also gives you free parking at most National Trust places, so always bring it with you when you visit.

How does it differ to membership?

Tenants will not be given access to the National Trust AGM or be able to vote. If tenants would like these additional benefits then they can purchase Trust membership.

If you become an eligible tenant after the packs are distributed at the start of each year, you’ll be given a welcome pack so you can still take advantage of the benefits for the remainder of the calendar year after your tenancy starts.

After this, you’ll be sent the tenant pass and pack at the start of each year for as long as you’re an eligible tenant of the National Trust.
