National Trust statement on grounds-only entry pricing

Tony Berry, visitor experience director for the National Trust, said: “We are not abolishing all grounds-only entry prices, but there are a few properties where we have simplified their admission prices and now offer one ‘whole property’ ticket price.
“We have only made this change in places where the majority of visitors were already paying for a full access ticket, and the new simpler prices have had no adverse impact on the number of people coming to enjoy a day out at our places. In fact, we’ve seen a significant increase in visitors taking out membership at these properties, generating extra income to help look after the buildings, grounds and facilities. Millions of people meanwhile continue to enjoy free access to hundreds of outdoor spaces in the countryside and along the coast managed by the Trust on behalf of the nation.”
