How you can get more from membership 

There’s a host of ways to use National Trust membership on a regular basis, even if you've got just an hour to spare or a few days. Change up your exercise routine, unearth some local history or enjoy an evening out.

Save the nation’s meadows 

Shockingly, 97 per cent of our meadows are disappearing. Help us restore 1,000 hectares of wildflower meadows and protect species like the large blue butterfly, the turtledove and the great yellow bumblebee before it's too late.
