Reopening update

We're reopening the places you love, gradually, safely and in line with government advice.

We’ve opened more than 100 gardens and parks in England and Northern Ireland through advanced booking. From Monday 6 July, we’re starting to gradually reopen gardens and parklands in Wales. You can book your visit on our website from 3 July.

Every Friday we release new tickets for the following week. We have to continue to limit numbers to make sure that visitors and staff will be safe, but we’re opening more places every week and adding more tickets for places that are already open. There are also hundreds of coastal and countryside car parks open in England, Wales and Northern Ireland which you don't have to book.

For now, all National Trust houses remain closed, but we’re working on plans for when we can reopen these again.

Follow the links below to find out what's open, how to book, and what to expect from your visit. Please always check before you travel.

Thanks for your patience and support. We're really looking forward to welcome you back.

Making the most of summer evenings 

Skies swept with pink, orange, red, and yellow - the long summer evenings give us the gift of the golden hour. On summer walks, especially during the longest days of the year, the evenings are balmy, and you can feel the joy that beams down on you from the setting sun.

The White Cliffs of Dover bloom once again  

As we mark National Meadows Day, we're proud to announce that the land surrounding the White Cliffs of Dover is awash with wild flowers and alive with the sound of songbirds, two and a half years after you helped us and Dame Vera Lynn save it for the nation.
