National Trust to reopen 29 properties from Wednesday – but you must buy ticket


About 29 properties will start opening from June 3 for people who have booked tickets in advance to limit numbers and keep the public safe. More attractions will open over the summer at sites where social distancing can be observed, and with only a third of the normal number of visitors allowed. The reopening will be for sites in England and Northern Ireland.

The National Trust warned that all properties and car parks in Wales remain closed in line with Welsh government rules.

All Trust houses and shops remain closed, along with holiday cottages and campsites.

While coastal and countryside car parks are mostly open, some busier ones may need to be closed or pre-booked, the charity has said.

Booking for parks and gardens opens today via the National Trust website, and will be free for Trust charity members.

The charity, which said sites will display information on how to stay safe, is also urging people to limit how many visits they book for now and to avoid busy hotspots.

The Royal Horticultural Society is also reopening its gardens around England from June 1 with a pre-booked tickets system.

The moves come after the Government amended regulations to confirm that people in England can visit gardens and land maintained for public use.

In Northern Ireland, the Executive has permitted the reopening of outdoor spaces.
