As many of my posts have featured National Trust properties to tell their stories, (see Spotting Cats or Wheelbarrows and Gardens among others) I thought that today I would give a shout out to the Royal Oak Foundation, the U.S. branch of the National Trust. If you are in the U.K. for any length of time, and will be visiting several NT properties, consider joining the NT through the Royal Oak. Not only will you save a lot of money on single entrance fees, but you will be helping to preserve these wonderful properties and lands for everyone to enjoy for posterity. It is a win, win situation. Our family have been family members for probably 20 years now. Every summer we visit the U.K. and are able to use our card at the properties we visit. Typically we visit maybe six or seven properties. Depending upon your level of donation, there are some extremely interesting extras that come along with membership. So take a moment to look through the Royal Oak website, see the different membership levels, the work of the National Trust and information on the latest projects Royal Oak are supporting. A website feature that I like very much, is the online shop where you can buy NT books and other products. Every year you will receive a copy of the NT handbook – an invaluable resource for getting around to the properties. Always be sure to check opening times and days! The properties may not be open every day. Lastly, one last nice membership feature is receiving the NT magazine and the Royal Oak newsletter during the year.
