Fancy getting your hands of a free National Trust ticket?
Autumn is upon us. Glorious shades of orange, brown and yellow grace our gorgeous country and the leaves are falling. Although it is beautiful, it can feel gloomy at times, especially when it feels like the news is one bad story after another.
But fear not. As always, at MoneyMagpie, we are constantly on the search for fun, free things to do. This time, we have found a real gem for you.
You can currently get free entry to National Trust sites across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. For a limited time, you can nab a free ticket, which allows entry to a huge number of historical and interesting sites for you and the family.
The best part? The ticket allows for up to two adults and four children to enter a National Trust site for free. Yes, you read that correctly. You can get free entry for six people. Adults, of course, are those aged 18 years and over, and children count as those aged between five and 17 years old. Those under the age of five get free entry to National Trust properties anyway.
Make sure you double check the website of the property you are going to in advance, as some of them require you to book prior to the date of your visit. If you do not book for certain properties, you may not be guaranteed entry.
There are also some exclusions, and some National Trust venues are not included in the promotion. You can see all the exclusions here. Make sure to double-check the list prior to arriving to avoid having to pay for a ticket!
You can get your free ticket now and use it anytime up to 30th November 2022. So, you can get your freebie now and use it over the October half term with the kids, or spend an autumnal day out with your loved ones to add some fun to the gloom of November.
Tickets are limited, however. The offer will continue on until the number of allocated tickets have been claimed, or until 30th November whichever is sooner. Get your ticket here.
The tickets are valid Monday to Sunday, so you can enjoy your visit any day of the week. The pass can also be used within any of the advertised opening hours for the property you want to visit. However, some sites may have parking charges, which you will still need to pay. The ticket covers entry to the site only.
The tickets are not valid at external National Trust events where an additional entry fee is required, and the tickets are not valid in conjunction with any other offer. You can read the full T&Cs here.
So, whether you fancy Castle Ward, a unique 18th-century mansion in Downpatrick, County Down or want to roam freely in an ancient royal hunting forest such as Hatfield Forest in Essex, there is bound to be something for everyone to enjoy.
