Our members’ magazine
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.
Spring 2024 magazine highlights
This year, we’ve given your National Trust Magazine a fresh new look for springtime. We’ve been listening to what our members have told us they want from the magazine, and we’ve made a few changes.
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 the Trust to look after nature, beauty and history - for everyone, for ever.
Many of you have told us that you’d like the option of reading your copy of National Trust Magazine digitally. Last year we trialled two different digital versions alongside your printed magazines. Thank you to everyone who took the time to give us your feedback. We’re evaluating the results and we’ll share an update with you soon.
