Nothing tells a nation’s story better than its’ homes. Our houses are not static museums, but personal, living examples of Britain’s past, present and future.
By joining Historic Houses you gain unrivalled access to the UK’s most important historic houses. Most of the sites are still lived in, often by the same family that has resided there for hundreds of years. You may well be shown around by the owner, see some of their belongings, or watch while they tend to the gardens.
The support of our members also helps us to advise, promote and represent the views of these independently-owned properties.
We are delighted you are considering joining Historic Houses. As you a member you'll receive access to hundreds of unique places to visit all over the UK, as well as exclusive events, special offers and our brand new magazine. Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
