SpenficaSpenfica

Every year there is an open day/weekend for a lot of the sites which unless you are a National Trust member you cannot get into for free.

The link should take you to the page where you can look at some highlights they've picked out for you, but check other local places as it will be a free day out and it may even be sunny enough for a picnic.

Here is their spiel:

Over 4,500 free events will be taking place across England's regions for this year's Heritage Open Days, 6th-9th September. We have picked for you some of the best, region by region

    They'll let anybody in these days, English Heritage cards or not! It's a shame that they don't join forces with The National Trust to become National Heritage or something(!)

    Ref Bermuda National Trust:

    https://onlinemembership.com/civicrm/contribute/transact?reset=1&id=1

    Does anyone know what the difference is between "Family or Overseas BNT @ $50" and "Family UK @ $37.50" - apart from the price of course ?!

    Will this also cover free parking at UK sites?

    As a single person with grown up children the "Individual UK @ $22.50" sounds like a bargain if it allows access to all UK NT sites!

    I think one is for UK sites and one is for other National Trust sites around the world including the UK.

    Sites:



    Africa: National Trust of Zimbabwe

    Asia: Japan National Trust

    Caribbean: Barbados National Trust; BVI National Parks Trust; National Trust for the Cayman Islands; The Conservation Trust of Puerto Rico
    Europe: National Trust for England, Wales and Northern Ireland; National Trust for Jersey; National Trust for Scotland; The Manx Museum and National Trust - Isle of Man; the Gelderland Trust for Historic Houses and the Gelderland Trust for National Beauty - Netherlands

    Pacific: All Australian State and Territory National Trusts - Australia and Tasmania; National Trust for Fiji; New Zealand Historic Places Trust; Queen Elizabeth II National Trust - New Zealand

    Plus if you buy a membership from Bermuda the National Trust here won't be getting any money from it which they need to maintain and run the sites in the UK.

    Do you have to print out anything or just turn up at these sites for free entry?

    The Bermuda National Trust could be a good buy for hard -up families like us! Can anyone tell me if it provides the same as UK National Trust?

    My Bermuda national trust membership card took about 3 weeks to arrive. Other friends have applied too & no problems or in using it over here. You want the family UK membership at $37.50 or the individual UK at $22.50. They cover all sites around the world inc UK. No free parking though, but for that price we can't really complain & only some UK sites charge for parking, others are free. They do not offer membership for couples so go for the family instead. Cheap as chips & deffo best deal you can get - I checked all their sites around the world!
