National Trust

The National Trust is a charity that works to preserve and protect historic places and spaces – for ever, for everyone.

With your help, the National Trust protects some of the most important spaces and places in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. It takes care of historic houses, gardens, mills, coastline, forests, woods, fens, beaches, farmland, moorland, islands, archaeological remains, nature reserves, villages and pubs – and then it opens them up for ever, for everyone.
