Advantages: Properties to visit all over the UK
We joined the National Trust last year whilst on holiday as there were a few Beatrix potter attractions we wanted to see and they had a special deal on for under 25s which meant we would spend the same money paying entrance to the ones we were going to anyway.
They were very efficient in signing us up, I normally get irriatated by the time it takes to process such applications but it was quick and we got a membership pack there and then with national trust guide which meant we could plan further visits and begin to make use of our membership.
We were sent our real membership cards very quickly and have since had our renewal cards in plenty of time for our next year of membership.
We also get a national trust magazine which is really quite interesting.
You get a sticker which means you can park for free in most of the national trust car parks which is a bonus.
I like having the pass as I am interesting in heritage properties and really enjoy a day out looking t historical sites. It means we can plan a day or week away and know we will have things to do for free! (you pay the one off membership fee and then no more so could be seen as free days out!) Brilliant for when you have limited funds!
Not only do we benefit from 'free' days out the annual membership is a brilliant way of supporting charity that does superb work in suporting, mantaining and preserving beautiful historical properties for future generations.
It really is worth the money as we check our guide whenever we go somewhere and fit a visit in as and when we can!!
Summary: Interesting days out on your doorstep
