A couple of months ago I did it! I joined the National Trust and I honestly cannot express how happy it has made me. At the risk of sounding like a 70 year old in a 30 something’s body I am loving the long walks and time for contemplation whilst getting closer to nature. Not being one that has ever been the type to be ‘at one with nature’ it is definitely an eye opening experience having access to so many naturally beautiful places.

With your membership you have access to over 500 amazingly beautiful places that you can visit over and over without having to shell out for access which can cost you around £10 to get in. I can almost guarantee that you will fall in love with at least one of the National Trust properties as there really is something for everyone. My current favourite is Winkworth Arboretum and despite being a bit of drive away from mine I am more than happy to jump in the car, stick on an audio book and get myself there on a day off.

Over the next couple of months I am making a bigger effort to save money on my days off. With that in mind I have put together a list of the places that I would like to visit and what are the great things about each one so I know a couple of little things to look out for (overly organised!).

Wakehurst Place

Claremont Landscape Garden

Petworth House & Park
