Do I Need To Pre-Book?
Some National Trust properties require booking in advance of the visit date. Please check the property’s website before visiting to check whether this is the case and book tickets. At these properties, without a booking, they cannot guarantee entry. To book where required:
Visit the property’s website, and click ‘Book a Visit’.
Select a free member’s ticket, and when asked for your membership number, type ReachPLCFreeAccess
Complete the transaction, and you will receive a confirmation email. If you only select the free member's tickets, you will not need to enter your debit/credit card details, and you will not be charged.
Bring along both your booking confirmation and the pass. Present these to the National Trust team member on arrival. Without both the booking confirmation and the free family pass, the venue cannot guarantee entry, and without the free family pass (email or cut-out), you will not receive free entry and will be charged the full admission price.
The free visit passes are valid from Monday - to Sunday at National Trust properties within advertised opening hours.
The free family pass is valid in National Trust properties within England, Wales and NI - although there are some exclusions. Below are the properties that are NOT participating in the offer. This National Trust family pass does not allow admission to places with reciprocal entry agreements, such as English Heritage (including Stonehenge) or National Trust for Scotland.
Are all National Trust Venues Participating In The Offer?
Unfortunately, not all properties are able to participate in free admission promotions; these promotions, including the Guest Pass promotion, are only valid at participating properties. Please see below for the list of properties where your voucher may not be used.
