What's open?

In England and Northern Ireland, our gardens, parks and countryside remain open for local people to exercise. The safety of our staff, volunteers and visitors from the nearby community remains our priority and we urge you to book your visits in advance and stay local. Please always check the property webpage of the place you wish to visit before you travel.

What's closed?

Following the Prime Minister's announcement of the latest lockdown in England, our shops, houses and visitor centres are closed, and some cafés will offer takeaway refreshments.

All National Trust in Wales places are currently closed in line with Welsh government restrictions. In Northern Ireland, houses, shops and visitor centres are closed and cafés are takeaway only.
