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 REACHSUMMER2024

  • 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.

This pass is single-use and is valid once from the date of issue through to 1st SEPTEMBER 2024

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 Scotland.

What Is The National Trust?

The National Trust is a UK-based charity and conservation organisation founded in 1895. Its mission is to protect and conserve historic buildings, gardens, parks, and other important cultural and natural heritage sites for future generations to enjoy. The National Trust owns and manages over 500 heritage properties and over 247,000 hectares of land across England, Wales, and Northern Ireland, including houses, gardens, castles, parks, and coastlines. The organisation also works to promote appreciation and understanding of the UK's heritage and offers a wide range of educational and recreational activities for the public to enjoy. The National Trust is funded by membership fees, donations, and government grants, and it is one of the largest membership-based charities in the UK.

With all the spectacular sites available to visit, it is always worth remembering that they'll be busy during the peak time of the early morning, so often it is better to wait until late morning or later afternoon to avoid the crowds if you don't intend to visit all day.  The venues will also be busy at weekends, half term and bank holidays.
