On the 20th and 21st April, families will have the opportunity to explore some of Britain’s best landscapes together, without stretching the purse strings. With winter behind us, the Free Weekend provides an opportunity to reconnect with the great outdoors and enjoy the charity’s picturesque gardens and houses across the country.

Nationally the charity is opening the doors to more than 200 of its houses and gardens for free to give everyone a great day out.

As well as giving families the opportunity to spend quality time together, the Free Weekend also removes financial concerns usually associated with great days out, providing a family saving of around £30.

In Shropshire, places including Attingham Park near Shrewsbury, Benthall Hall near Broseley and Sunnycroft in Wellington, will be opening their doors for free. Dudmaston Estate, near Bridgnorth, and Wilderhope Manor, at Longville, will both open for free on the Sunday only.

Jo Mason, Marketing and Communications Consultant for the National Trust, said: “The Free Weekend is the perfect opportunity for a family day out at special places on your doorstep or further afield.

“Spring is a lovely time to visit as the first bulbs are out and our gardens and parklands are regaining their colour.

“And, for those contemplating joining the National Trust, the weekend offers a real taster of all the fantastic things there are to see and do with us all year round.”
