The National Trust For visiting fabulous British Gardens to get inspiration, ideas and for sheer enjoyment - click on the National Trust logo below. The National Trust is a charity and is completely independent of Government. It relies for income on membership fees, donations and legacies, and revenue raised from commercial operations. It now has 3.4 million members and 43,000 volunteers. More than 12 million people visit its pay for entry properties, while an estimated 50 million visit The National Trusts' open air properties. It protects and opens to the public over 300 historic houses and gardens and 49 industrial monuments and mills. But it doesn’t stop there, it also looks after forests, woods, fens, beaches, farmland, downs, moorland, islands, archaeological remains, castles, nature reserves, villages - for ever, for everyone.

The National Trust was founded in 1895 by three Victorian philanthropists - Miss Octavia Hill, Sir Robert Hunter and Canon Hardwicke Rawnsley. Concerned about the impact of uncontrolled development and industrialisation, they set up the Trust to act as a guardian for the nation in the acquisition and protection of threatened coastline, countryside and buildings. More than a century later, it now cares for over 248,000 hectares (612,000 acres) of beautiful countryside in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, plus more than 700 miles of coastline and more than 200 buildings and gardens of outstanding interest and importance.  Most of these properties are held in perpetuity and so their future protection is secure. The vast majority are open to visitors and so The National Trust is constantly looking at ways in which to improve public access and on-site facilities.
