Explore for free with your National Lottery ticket
We're offering free entry to National Lottery players at a number of National Trust places between 18 and 26 March 2023. As a charity, we want to say thank you to National Lottery players who have made so much of our conservation work possible. Many of the places we look after have benefitted due to the significant contribution of over £120m from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
Please check back in 2024
National Lottery Open Week 2023 has now passed so please check back next year for details of how to get involved.
Discover something new
From medieval castles and craggy countryside, to sandy shores and woodland walks, there are plenty of adventures to be had at the places we look after.
Will you discover fallow deer and outdoor play at Belton House in Lincolnshire, the giant waterwheel and apprentice house at Quarry Bank Mill in Cheshire, or Capability Brown landscapes at Sheffield Park in West Sussex?
What you need to bring when visiting
To enjoy this special offer, you just need to show one National Lottery ticket, scratch card or Instant Win game per adult for free entry at participating properties between 18 and 26 March. Under 18s can accompany a lottery ticket holder for free. So, whether you’re exploring a National Trust place for the first time or you’re a lifetime member, this is a great opportunity to enjoy a day out for yourself or to bring along your family and friends.
Not all places are taking part in the free entry offer. Please check the National Lottery website before you travel to find out the opening times and days for those participating.
