Free day out for your family

Last Updated: May 1, 2024 This post was written by Clive Price

Fancy a free day out with the grandchildren this spring? Then claim a National Trust family pass worth £25-£35, says the MoneySavingExpert website.

A staggering 75,000 free e-tickets have allegedly been released. They can be claimed on the Daily Star, Daily Mirror and Daily Express websites.

You’ll find a free National Trust family pass printed as a voucher within the papers

MoneySavingExpert warn these free tickets are usually very popular. You need to be quick if you want to take the grandkids out and breathe in nature along the way.

Alternatively, if you buy a physical copy of the Daily Star, Daily Mirror or Daily Express by Sunday 5 May, you’ll find a free National Trust family pass printed as a voucher within the papers.

Some regional papers are also included, such as the Liverpool Echo and Manchester Evening News. Visit MoneySavingExpert for a full list of papers.

This is a one-time family pass for use any day until Friday 14 June 2024, excluding bank holiday weekends (4-6 and 25-27 May). MoneySavingExpert said on average, the pass would normally cost £25 to £35 depending on the site.

The family pass allows two adults and up to three children, or one adult and four children to visit one National Trust site for free in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. A small number of properties are excluded – check here. Scotland locations and English Heritage aren’t included. Single adults and couples can also use a family day pass.

Some National Trust properties require booking in advance – check beforehand

Kids must be 17 or under, though under-fives go free anyway. There’s nothing to pay for entry, but some car parks charge fees, and this pass doesn’t cover parking. One pass per household is permitted.

MoneySavingExpert advise that some National Trust properties require booking in advance, so check beforehand.

Show your paper voucher when you arrive at your National Trust site. If you booked, show your booking email as well. MoneySavingExpert warn that mobile coverage may be limited at some sites, so download it to your device, or print the email. For queries, contact nationaltrustpromo@reachplc.com.
