The National Trust members' magazine is our 'thank you' to you for being part of our work to care for nature, history and beauty. Published three times a year, it's full of behind-the-scenes stories and striking photography. We hope it will inspire you about all there is to discover and be part of with the National Trust.

Summer 2024 magazine highlights

Whatever your plans this summer, we hope your new magazine issue encourages you to make the most of the season ahead.

Maybe you’re looking for some inspiration for your next visit? Dip into the ‘Out & about’ section for a month-by-month flavour of what might be on near you, whether that’s a local event or something seasonal to do. Have a peek at the ‘Just for you’ section to remind yourself of all the brilliant benefits that come with membership as well as your visits. We’ve got exclusive competitions, behind-the-scenes stories, tips and makes, and sneak previews from our members’ area.

Or simply take some time for yourself and settle down with one of our feature articles to discover more about how your support is helping us look after nature, beauty and history – for everyone, for ever.

Going digital

From the autumn issue (coming September 2024), the National Trust Magazine will also be available digitally. With My Account, you can now decide whether you'd like to continue receiving your magazine in print or whether you'd prefer our new digital edition instead.

On the cover

At Mottisfont in Hampshire, the ‘old fashioned’ roses bloom just once a year and reach their peak in early June. As we celebrate 50 years since the precious collection was brought to Mottisfont for visitors to enjoy, the garden team is preparing it to face the climate challenges of the future.
