The National Trust in Harrogate & District
Don't Forget To Bring Your NT Card!
Yorkshire is home to dozens of National Trust sites and three of the best lie with the Harrogate District area itself, so bring your membership card when you visit and get the most from your stay.
National Trust membership is a gateway to the gems of any area you visit, and a great way to support the preservation of our cultural and natural treasures in the UK.
The National Trust looks after hundreds of historic buildings, but often less well known they also safeguard hundreds of acres of land to be enjoyed by and protected for all.
The World Heritage Site of Fountains Abbey & Studley Royal combines the ruins of a 12th century Cistercian monastery with landscaped water gardens and follies that have been deemed of global value and importance.
Beningbrough Hall is a Georgian stately home in grounds on the banks of the River Ouse.
The property includes a gallery with over 100 pieces on loan from the National Portrait Gallery and extensive gardens with a tradition walled kitchen garden, produce from which is used in the Walled Garden Restaurant.
From the man-made wonders to those that are naturally occurring – Brimham Rocks in Nidderdale is the product of millions of years.
This geoglogical phenomenon has been formed by the slowly shifting glaciers of successive ice ages, and then shaped by hundreds of thousands of years of wind, rain and sand.
The shapes and formations which can be found will tease the imagination and since Victorian times, have given rise to a number of nicknames inspired by what the rocks resemble.
On a longer stay you should keep your National Trust membership card handy when you travel further afield.
The Trust cares for a two properties in the city of York, Treasurers House and Goddards, each with their own distinctive story and just a short train journey from Harrogate or Knaresborough.
The National Trust also cares for other natural landmarks in the Yorkshire Dales, including the iconic Malham Tarn and its surrounding landscape, the 17th century Braithwaite Hall – a beautiful farmhouse with rooms on show to visitors through the summer months and the stunning landscape around Buckden, in Upper Wharfedale.
