This spring, the National Trust is opening the doors to more than 200 of its houses and gardens for free for an entire weekend.

On the 20th and 21st of April, families across England, Wales and Northern Ireland will have the opportunity to explore some of Britains best landscapes together, without stretching the purse strings.

With winter behind us, the Free Weekend provides an opportunity to reconnect with the great outdoors and enjoy the charitys picturesque gardens and houses across the UK.

Whether its building a den in the woods at Gibside (above), discovering rare breeds of farm animals at Wimpole Estate, or simply enjoying a gentle stroll in one of its gardens, the National Trust has plenty for all the family to enjoy. More than 200 properties are taking part, in addition to the 250,000 hectares of countryside and 710 miles of coastline, cared for by the National Trust, that are always free to access.

As well as giving families the opportunity to spend quality time together in fun spaces, the Free Weekend also removes the financial concerns sometimes associated with great days out, providing a family saving of around £30.

To plan your free weekend (and for details of the limited number of excluded properties) visit and download a free voucher today for the location of your choice.
