About the National Trust

As Europe’s largest conservation charity, we look after nature, beauty and history for everyone to enjoy. We do it with the help of millions of members, volunteers, staff and donors. Without this, we couldn’t care for the miles of coastline, woodlands, countryside and the hundreds of historic buildings, gardens and precious collections we protect.

Your support keeps nature and history flourishing. You help us care for:

• More than 780 miles of coastline
• More than 250,000 hectares of land
• More than 500 historic houses, castles, parks, and gardens
• Nearly a million works of art
