If it's to use at national trust places then expect it to just about cover a cup of coffee
Don't really get the expensive argument. Prices are good value for memberships IMO. I pay £120 a year for a family of 4?

Take a flask and a picnic to avoid the cafe.

NT is expensive but the money they make is used to maintain our beautiful countryside, not to supply cheap cups of vanilla lattes and babychinos.

That's what the membership is for. There is no need to take the micky in the shops too

They recently spent millions on some of the places near us. Basically making snazzy entrances which doesn't maintain the countryside at all

Worth reading annual report if you're confused. nationaltrust.org.uk/doc…pdf

Visitor numbers are up by 5 million in the past 5 years but membership numbers are stagnant. Social media has played a part, mummys keeping up with mummy friends etc. these "snazzy entrances" were put in due to increased footfall. Of course food and drink is going to be expensive on private land, thats called supply and demand. What about other sites with few visitors? I see your point of view but its not that simple and I don't think you've grasped the size of the NT, the membership isn't there to subsidise hot drinks, its a charity.

Yeah we do that too. Fountains Abbey is around ~£50 for a family visit, only need to visit more than two or three places a year to save.

Yes NT is a ripoff somebody somewhere is making massive profits. In northern Ireland they took over giant's causeway which had been free of charge for years they built a small visitor center which isn't that good and now charge £16 pp hundreds visit everyday and there is next to no maintenance costs as it's just a coastal path just a few people to pick up litter and collect fees they will make millions in profit from this a huge cash cow for them. They also charge for a nearby beach in portstewart that you can drive on again no maintenance costs apart from someone to collect money and maybe give it the odd tidy. However all the other beaches in the area are free and maintained by the Council. They basically have taken tourist attractions that used to be free and have next to no maintenance costs and charge money which is a great business model.

Who pays for water, toilets, staff for the coachloads of tourists that turn up on the game of thrones tours? Who pays for the shuttle bus for the less able?
Damn signed up a week ago when I went to the giant's causeway. No discounts.
Thanks
Your membership will go towards subsidising landed gentry to run fox hunts on their estates.

I'm a member, but it's not exactly a humanitarian exercise: it's a business.
Better to join the RSPB or your local Wildlife Trust. Wonderful reserves to visit and a lot less expensive.

But.....you would not have had to pay to visit the Giant’s Causeway.
Edited by: "davidridge1" 8th Jan 2019
Isn't the path to the Giants Causeway 'free'. Regardless of how NT try to discourage you! However, you will still need to pay for your parking and access to the visitors' center if required. Much like Stonehenge--there's a legal path that runs astonishingly close.

'Our' heritage... Put a fence around it and it becomes 'their' money making enterprise.

I'm thinking that you drop your family off at the entrance and then just pay for the driver.
NT was about £60 a couple, 5 years ago. Now its about £110 while we all scrimp in austerity Britain NT has been awarding itself 20% pay rises every year

Its prices now resemble a Premier League football club, where the working class are excluded and only the middle class can afford membership

The tip is most properties have a public footpath - look it up and get in (the grounds at least) for free

And while you're there, pop into the cafe for a free meal. Most of them have an easily accessible kitchen - just hop over the counter, steal whatever food takes your fancy and run off with it before they can catch you.

Thanks for another great tip.
This is the latest national trust membership deal I can see on kind. Still alot of cash? Do they ever run promos on joint membership? We got English heritage joint membership for around £70 a few years ago. Holding out for a similar price with national trust!
I wish they did a loyalty reward as old members never get any offers

Leave and rejoin every year. If you time it right, you get 13 months for the price of 12 and the free card.
Can’t see where to enter the code. Anyone managed to use this offer

Sorry to have to tell you that NT England have finally woken up to the scam after complaints from their members and blocked it. Check what you’ll pay to renew with Heritage NZ.

You can still get a family ticket from the Canadian NT for £43 though

Individual senior life only: £1,295 An individual aged 60 or over.

if you live to 90 you get over 12 years free, now you have something to live for

In Birmingham the council has started charging for parking in public parks, creeping privatisation of our public spaces!

Government cuts leave them little choice if they’re to avoid financial collapse, sadly. Take it up with Johnson in a few weeks. If you ask him now he’ll tell you they’re all going to be free, with free ice cream and doughnuts thrown in
