'We all want quiet. We all want beauty... We all need space. Unless we have it, we cannot reach that sense of quiet in which whispers of better things come to us gently.' These are the words of our co-founder Octavia Hill and they’re as true now as they were when we were founded 125 years ago. Watch this video to discover why.

How membership could inspire you to try something new 

Whether you decide to take up gardening after visiting one of our kitchen gardens, or develop a love of photography thanks to hours spent walking along the coast, there are plenty of ways you might be inspired by the places we care for.
