National Trust

The National Trust was founded in 1895 with the aim of saving our nation's heritage and open spaces. More than a century later, they are still working hard to uphold these values. In true dedication to their objective, the National Trust has toiled endlessly since their start to preserve and protect historic places and green spaces, opening them up for everyone - forever.

It's fair to say they look after a lot of things, from places and spaces to objects and artefacts, historic houses and castles to gardens and coastlines – and many more in between! You'll never be far from a place to visit in South East England and for frequent visits, National Trust membership is your annual pass to a world of history, stunning architecture and magnificent gardens.

The National Trust acts as your gateway to South East England, with 144 sites in the South East alone, it’s difficult to pass through any county without happening upon one of their beautiful nature reserves, charming villages or even grabbing a bite to eat in one of their quintessentially English pubs (they own and run 61 of them, after all!).

There is plenty to see and do through the National Trust properties - why not bring the whole family to enjoy the views over a picnic at Toys Hill in Kent, the site that inspired the Trust to be founded, or visit Sussex's Alfriston Clergy House, the very first building acquired by the National Trust in 1896.

If you delight in brushing up on your history, you could visit Bodiam Castle, the 14th Century fortress complete with water-filled moat, while art and architecture enthusiasts will favour a visit to Waddesdon Manor.
