Yes, you may be still lamenting your arrival home from a trip abroad this summer, but there actually are plenty of historic and, sometimes, beautiful landmarks to visit in this country; even if you have to brave the autumn breeze to make it there. And soon, you’ll be able to make a merry voyage to one of these attractions for the price of… nothing. The National Trust is set to give away free group tickets to their impressive roster of attractions scattered around the United Kingdom.
In a bid to cure the end-of-summer blues and get people out and about in the crispy-leaf season of autumn, the National Trust is offering free passes for visitors for a month, meaning you’ll be able to waive the entry fee that some sites ask for upon entry.
Top spots in the UK range from the faraway fairytale settings of Culzean Castle in Scotland to ones that are basically on our doorsteps here in Manchester, like the stately home at Lyme Park where the 1995 adaptation of Pride and Prejudice was filmed, and the beautiful Dunham Massey.
Free single-use passes run between September 18 – October 20, and allow free entry for two adults and three children; one adult and four children; or just two adults by themselves.
While you can take advantage of hundreds of stunning attractions, there are a few places, which include Hadrian’s Wall and Giant’s Causeway, that are exempt from the free pass, and you can check the full list of these on the National Trust website.
Anyone who wishes to take advantage (and why wouldn’t you?) of the free National Trust pass this month should head here and claim their single-use trip anytime between now and October 20. For locations where visitors are asked to pre-book, you can use ESCAPEINTOAUTUMN2023 when prompted to give your membership number at the checkout.
