Give a Gift Membership to the National Trust


 The National Trust has been conserving the nation’s treasures for over a hundred years. Give a National Trust Gift Membership and you'll help preserve & protect some of the UK's most beautiful & historic places and help in the work the National Trust does, such as preserving ancient trees, or its project to revive traditional orchards across England, preserving historic monuments & places or to work looking after nature & wildlife.   

For every roof that’s restored, every acre of land cared for, every time a work of art is conserved, or every orchard that’s brought back to life so that it can blossom again, well, members are part of that and have contributed towards it.

Did you know this about the National Trust?

The Trust and its members cares for

  •  Over 780 miles of coastline
  • Over 250,000 hectares of land
  • Hundreds of historic houses, castles, parks, and gardens
  • Nearly one million works of art! It has some incredible art and collections - there are over 200 collections with tapestries, art, sculptures, furniture and ceramics.  

Of course all these things need to be carefully preserved and some need restoring and  it’s good that the Trust has experts to do this sensitive and vital work.

So even if you are sitting at home, wishing you could head off to places and explore, members can find joy in the fact that they are making a difference.  In fact, every National Trust membership is a lifeline for countryside, coastline, historic sites, green spaces and the people who care for them, for the National Trust protects beautiful and historic places for future generations to enjoy.
