A Year of Great Days Out: Gift of Membership
A gift doesn't have to be just for Christmas - why not treat someone special to the gift that lasts all year? English Heritage membership is the perfect treat for a loved one, providing easy access to hundreds of amazing days out and places to visit.
Membership entitles you to free entry at over 400 castles, stately homes, ruins and much more, plus free or discounted admission to hundreds of events. It also provides free entry for children in the family group, and discounts to hundreds of other attractions in England, Wales, Scotland and the Isle of Man.
"My daughter bought me an English Heritage gift membership last Christmas, and it was a fantastic idea. I have visited so many beautiful, historic places all for free, and was able to take my grandchildren with me for free too. I would certainly recommend this gift idea at Christmas!" Mrs Dixon, Wiltshire
