The National Trust

The National Trust want to make it as easy as possible for you to visit the places you love, and enjoy the landscapes and nature we’ve all missed. They have opened more than 100 gardens and parklands in England and Northern Ireland. From Monday 6 July, they are starting to gradually open gardens and parklands in Wales. To ensure the safety of their visitors, staff, volunteers and local communities, they have reduced the number of people they can welcome at one time and you’ll need to book your visit in advance.
