4 stars Touring Pass Written by

We bought a week's pass for our visitor from Holland. It was very good value, but the restrictions on where the voucher could be redeemed meant that our itinerary had to be geared to the pass. Also we were amazed by the amount of handwriting involved in the issue of the pass, and recording it at the properties visited. Surely the Trust's computer systems can be updated to address these issues? We also had some gift vouchers. These too caused problems in restaurants as the codes could not be "read" by the machines and the details had to be input by hand, causing delays at the till.

3 stars good value for money but some limitations Written by

The package is good value for money if one intends to visit many properties, but I cannot understand why there is no option to get a temporary car park sticker, too. I find it even more limiting that one can redeem the internet voucher at certain properties only; these must by default be the first visit -this makes planning one's holidays (remember these vouchers are for people with limited time...) a bit awkward.

5 stars amazing value Written by

these passes are really amazing value and i'm glad we discovered them a few years ago. visiting approximately three properties will make it cheaper to have a pass and the pass is valid for a whole week. For properties with paid parking the use of the pass is a bit vague. if there is somebody at the gate collecting money as you drive in then showing the pass is enough, but for car parks where you pay and display the parking ticket then things are less clear (since unlike annual members, the pass does not come with a sticker to put inside your rental car). A voucher is emailed to you and you then collect your actual pass at an NT property, although only about 10% of properties will issue the pass, so you must visit one of the 10% first (you do not have to go around the house though and might just collect the pass from there). Print out your email voucher since we wanted to collect the pass from a property which has somebody collecting parking fees at the main gate, about 1km before the house itself (show the voucher at the gate and explain what you're doing - no parking fee in this case). The prices for groups could be better. three adults means 1x two person pass and 1x one person pass, Since the voucher is just an online code it should be possible to order for three people at 1.5x the price of the two person pass (or cheaper).

5 stars Excellent value Written by

I was told about this when I put my nose in to the old City Mill in Winchester. The focus my trip was gardens, but many of the properties include wonderful parks and gardens, so I bought a week membership. Being based near Southampton, I was able to visit properties in Dorset, Hampshire, Sussex, and Surry. I had a wonderful time going up hill and down dale and through my lady's garden (literally). Being back home now in the US, I have been singing the praises of this inexpensive way to see so many wonderful places. Now if only they could do something about the monotony and repetitiveness of the products in the NT stores…

2 stars How to make it the customer as difficult as possible Written by

Unlike the national heritage pass and the scottisch version of the pass you can only buy them online. After that you can only pick them up at certain locations. I had to buy normal entrance tickets for four persons on my first location, which cost me about 50,- extra. It is completely idiotic that you have to adjust your trip to be able to pick up your tickets. Furthermore buying the pass on line is very hard to find on the site as well. Why not do as the others. Less work for the volunteers and so much more customer friendly, A holiday or short trip should be enjoyable and not disappointing and stressfull.

5 stars Great Written by

Great way to invite your friend to share with your lovely places. Thank you and highly recommended to every visitor.

5 stars I love touring passes! Written by

I love touring passes. It'll be the fourth time I buy one, and hopefully not the last! It's a great way to save money if you are an overseas visitor and love visiting NT properties, which is my case. I only wish it could be picked up at every property...

5 stars Inspiring places Written by

Very nice opportunity to visit inspiring places.

5 stars Touring Pass National Trust Written by

I got very good help and advice to get the touring-pass and also the guides on the places are very good.

5 stars Great Written by

Five stars.

5 stars N.T. Touring Pass Written by

Extremely worthwhile. Have visited seven properties during my stay in East Anglia and the Peak District. Will certainly use one on my next visit to the UK. Found all the properties visited very interesting, enlightening and loved the heritage of the UK.

5 stars Good Value Written by

We are full members but we used this as we had a French friend visiting several gardens and houses in Kent area. Very good value as we had our money's worth in four days.

5 stars Touring Pass Written by

I bought this on behalf of my friend from Germany, who was visiting England. It was excellent value and she used it to the full while in England. We both think the passes are an excellent idea, as it makes deciding where to go easy. We were in the Lake District and then in Solihull.

5 stars Touring-Pass Written by

all was perfect

5 stars Excellent way to visit so many places Written by

Excellent way to visit so many places especially houses, castles and gardens! Parking for free, an informative booklet and a map to help you out even further ... Friendly staff and volunteers everywhere! It was a real pleasure using this card. I will certainly recommend it to friends.

5 stars Great value for money and so much to see! Written by

Bought it for our friend who was visiting from Portugal, so he could come with us as we have family membership. He loved the beautiful places you could visit with the pass and plenty to see just around Kent, even more if willing to travel! Pass is easy and quick to redeem just with an email, but be sure to check which locations you can pick it up from and which places you can't visit with this pass. We had a really great week!

5 stars Great product, confusing to buy Written by

I was only in the UK for five days, but I found lots of places to go with my touring pass. Finding out that Stonehenge was a National Trust property was a nice surprise. I did find the ordering process to be confusing. I eventually figured out that the National Trust no longer sends 7-day passes in the mail, but the order form really made it seem as though I would have to wait for it to be posted to me. The redemption process was not clear. Although there was information on redemption properties, I didn't know how that worked - whether I would have to pick a specific property as my mailing address. I emailed the help address with these questions and got excellent, quick customer service, but it would have been helpful for the ordering process to be clearer and better explained on the website itself.

3 stars What about those in the uk? Written by

I bought this visitor pass for my sister who was coming to stay for a week in Somerset. It appears that this is a pass mainly designed for those visiting the UK, rather than friends and family. I think the NT would do well to enable members to obtain a pass at a reasonable price as a taster for friends and family, and that may have a positive effect on increasing membership and support

5 stars Great for visiting guests Written by

Good value - and great for visiting guests. Some of them have joined NT afterwards... :-)

4 stars Wish Written by

Dear National Trust! I am very happy to have bought your Touring Pass again.It is at least the second time I have purchased it and it seems to be very useful to me. The only thing I would really appreciate is the fact if the Pass could be sent directly to my address because not all the places where I can pick it up are suitable for me. But I realize that it is not so easy. Anyway, thanks a lot, looking forward to visiting your lovely places again this year. Dana Šafránková, Prague

5 stars Great value! Written by
This is the second time I've bought the National Trust Touring Pass - 7 Days. Last time I had a great time visiting the Peak District, Oxfordshire and Bath...this time it's Wiltshire, Hampshire, Surrey and Sussex. Great value - lots of properties to see.
5 stars What a deal! Written by
Well, any visit to a National Trust site is a deal! I bought 2 7 day passes for our recent visit and we were able to support the NT AND save ourselves some money going to 7 places without rushing around! A bargain at only 25 pounds!!! one suggestions---why such limited locations to pick these up? Maybe a way to access the initial visit/pass electronically for more locations could be looked at? We were lucky this trip that Lacock was on our way to our destination-herefordshire. Many thanks.
5 stars National trust touring pass Written by

really worth the money ! we received a warm welcome from the national Trust members in Lanhydrock where we picked up our passes... the properties we visited were really well-runned and interesting for all the members of the family. we will get another pass next time we ravel to England.

5 stars National Trust touring pass-admit one, 7 days Written by

As we always travel 3 adults, isn't it possible to got a pass for 3 adults? Superbe pass, easy to ask, easy to use.

4 stars Why did you have to change it? Written by

Love the idea of the pass, and have purchased it numerous times in the past for German friends staying with me. But this year it was a pain,being restricted to just a few properties to pick up the actual pass. To illustrate: I picked up my friend from Heathrow and en route to Bristol we spent the weekend in Oxford. Would have liked to "loop en route", taking in Basildon Park, Or after Oxford, Upton House on route to Stratford on Avon. But had to drive all the way to Charlecote for my friend to pick up her pass, missing out so many other beautiful places. In the end, she visited only 3 places on her 7 day pass, the Trust missed income for many more cream teas and lunches and gift items. Please change it back!!

5 stars Excellent Travel Purchase Written by

If your interest in England runs to history, architecture, and/or beautiful gardens, the NT Pass for Overseas Visitors is a wonderful investment. Beautiful, often moving, well-maintained properties, often with well run tea-rooms or cafeterias to sustain the traveler make touring a pleasure.

5 stars Great value for money Written by

Fantastic experiences for very little money

5 stars Very good Written by

I find these 7 day touringpass a very good idea , certainly if you are an overseas visitor. I just wonder if there is no possibility to buy one for a group of 3 adults instead of haring to buy two passes one for one and one for two adults.

5 stars Great value if your plans include visiting several of the National Trust sites Written by

This pass saved time and money, since we were planning on visiting several of the National Trust sites. We were able to pick up the card at the first site we visited and save on parking fees and entrance fees for six visits. I would recommend this pass to anyone wishing to visit famous homes and gardens. National Trust volunteers at the sites were helpful and knowledgeable, too.

5 stars Good Option, but limited options for collection Written by

I have visited the UK many times and most times have purchased a NT membership to allow me to take advantage of visiting as many places as possible during my stay. The Visitor Pass is great as the cost is lower and the benefit greater, but I am having to alter my original plans and am having to knock off one place I had planned to visit and have been wanting and waiting for the opportunity to present itself to visit for years. This is because my options for collecting my pass are extremely limited. Fortunately it is near the airport and it's a property I haven't visited before or it would have been a completely wasted day. All that said, I appreciate all of the great work the National Trust does, and I always look forward to browsing the shops! Looking forward to my trip!

4 stars Good value but only if you live near to one of the pick up sites. Written by

We bought a 7 day touring pass for a visiting friend. If you see a lot of NT sites it is good value for money but they don't make it easy. You buy it online and then you only have a handful of places where you can pick it up. Which means that unless you have one of the designated sites near you it is a reason not to buy. It is not as good value as the English Heritage 9 day pass which you can buy at any of their sites. Can't understand why NT does it this way? Would it be that difficult to make the admin easier and more convenient for overseas visitors?

5 stars National Trust Touring Pass Written by

Once again, we were able to take full advantage of the overseas visitor pass for our trip to the UK. We were fortunate that we were staying at Bodnant Garden, so collecting our pass was not a problem. However, it would be nice to have more options for obtaining the pass.

5 stars National Trust Touring Pass Written by

I had a friend visiting from overseas and was delighted to find out that I could get a pass that would allow her a week's access to National Trust properties (although we only needed it for a long weekend). Since it was a present, I bought it online and when we went to collect it, they put it in her name after she showed them her passport. I was worried they wouldn't allow that. My only criticism - but a big one - is the very limited number of places where you can collect a pass. There seems to be no reason for it, as all properties we visited had a visiting office where they could keep passes, and with the internet its easy to check who has and hasn't bought a pass. As a result, we had to go a long way out of our way to visit a property we didn't want to go to, and as a consequence we missed visiting another property that we would much rather have seen.

5 stars good except for transport Written by

This card was interesting as I had the opportunity to visit 3 National Trust properties - Tyntesfield, Clevedon and Tredegar. I also planned to visit Dyffryn Gardens in Cardiff but I was told it was very difficult and dangerous to walk there as there was no public transport stopping nearby. I think you could sometimes be more precise in your mentioning public transport to the properties. For Tyntesfield, you mention frequent services but forget to mention the bus numbers. For Tredegar you mention services 30 and 34 while 34 is much more convenient. It's a shame you can't work hand in hand with public transportation for people like me who don't use a car in England. I will never be able to visit some properties as I can't access them. We are asked to save the planet by using our cars less but we are not helped enough to do so. Regards

1 stars Touring Pass - terrible pick up locations and confusion of start dates Written by

I find it very inconvenient to have to find transportation out of my way to pick up a touring pass when in this day and age everything is done online. To have to actually go to a specific property that I did not even wish to view just to pick up a pass is ridiculous. Also there was confusion as to when the pass took effect. They insisted that it started that day - which is not what I understood from the website. They marked my pass having started then and there. I had no intention of viewing that property as I was only there because it was listed as a place to pick it up. My actual visit was not to start until the following week. I can not understand why you don't just send a pass to the purchaser or a code that they can bring to the first property they view and then that property issues the pass. To make a customer go to a property (yes you have a list - but if you don't have transport it is very difficult to get to some of them which may not be easy to get to) that is out of the way just to pick up a piece of paper with a date. This is such a backward way of doing this. If you insist on ID's then the customer could bring that with (which they probably would have regardless) when they visit their first property on their itinerary - not what is best for you - WHAT SHOULD BE BEST FOR THE CUSTOMER. Although I enjoyed my visits to various properties - the experience of obtaining the pass soured it. Especially since I had to explain the crossed off dates every time I presented the pass. Highly inefficient system especially for the customer or guest or whatever we are called these days.

5 stars A wonderful deal for overseas visitors Written by

We purchased a 7 day pass for a visit from the USA. it was fantastic value as we managed to see eight properties in the seven days! Douglas was enthral led by the beautiful places, excellent guides and careful restoration. The only downside was the difficulty in obtaining the pass and the lack of definitive advice given by NT staff on the phone or by email. Also the Back to Backs in Birmingham had not been given cards and so had to do a make shift arrangement and then we had to go through the procedure again at Charlecote. The excellence of the scheme needs to be better advertised and easier for the visitors to get the passes. Having said that we all enjoyed the hectic week and saw things Douglas would not have been able to afford otherwise. The savings meant we could enjoy all the great NT Tearooms as well. Thank you.
