Heritage House and Botanic Garden Membership Schemes (2014 prices)

  • Historic Houses Association (Annual: £45 single /£72 double) : Membership scheme which gives free entrance to many houses passed by the walks.
  • National Trust (First Year: £43.50/£71.62) : Covers several of the more well known attractions (e.g. Nymans Gardens, Wakehurst, Winkworth, Knole House), and free parking at NT car parks.
  • English Heritage (£49/£86) : Has a similar scheme, but only a few of its properties are covered by these walks.
  • The Art Fund (First Year: £42.75/£64.50) : Eclectic mixture of NT, English Heritage, and museums. Not many places on the walks, but maybe of interest as it covers most London museums. Recommended.
  • The National Pinetum, Kew Gardens / Wakehurst, and Heligan have a reciprocal membership scheme.
