I requested - and got - from my son for Christmas a National Trust membership. Don't know if it still the case - probably not - but at one time it was only elderly people who had NT memberships, so I reckon I must be getting old!

Can't understand the camp sites though - looking in the book they all seem to be CC sites so if you book on one which price do you pay? The CC price or the NT one?

I think that NT only actually manage a few of the sites on their properties, the others being rented to one of the Clubs, for example, who charge their own fees.

So what's the point of booking in on a National Trust membership if you have to pay the dearer CC fees? Unless I'm reading things wrong that seems to be a bit of a con.

There is a camping charge made either to the NT or the tenant of the campsite, with, as far as I've been able to check, no concession to NT members.

What you get for your NT subscription is free access to their pay-to-enter properties and (usually) free parking at both those and their open-access estates, coastline etc.

Well I've just looked on the NT website for the Houghton Mill camp site which is a CC one and the stated NT charges are lower than the CC ones so I would assume that I would pay the lower charge if booking in as a NT member. If not then I won't be going!

Funny some replies mentioned "The age thing" someone said to me that they thought you had to be over 75 to join!!!!!!!!!!!!!! well am no where near that yet and its for all ages alot of places have childrens play areas i enjoy Attingham Park nr Shrewsbury lovely walks for the dogs( some areas are lead free) the house though at the moment not open is of good historical interest i noted they do camping sites but unable to comment as i have not looked into it yet. I thought the NT was for the more maturer but its far from the truth and its a good day out!!!

Their Museum of Childhood at Sudbury Hall is ideal for children of all ages.

" ...they thought you had to be over 75 to join!!!!"
Nah, that's another organisation frequently mentioned on these forums!

We are members but have now been to most places that interest us, we don't "do" stately homes. Useful for car parking but I think I will cancel this year and join English Heritage instead. Am I right in thinking that I can use Tesco vouchers for this?

Been there did that years ago when we were younger. Got our money back on properties viewed then left. It can certainly be worth joining just for the free parking at Studland beaches if anyone is holidaying down that way.
