About the deal
Historic Houses offers its members the opportunity to discover privately owned houses and their art collections, architecture, and gardens. Many of these homes and estates are lived-in family homes, and their residents are often able to trace their lineage there back hundreds of years. Your membership helps the Historic Houses association support these independent owners with the running, care, and preservation of their historic houses and gardens.

There are around 300 properties you can visit for free with a Historic Houses membership. You could take a trip to Alnwick Castle in Northumberland, which dates back to the Norman period, head south to Highclere Castle in Hampshire, the main filming location for "Downton Abbey", or discover the 950-year-old Rockingham Castle in Leicestershire. Balmoral, the Scottish home of the Royal Family, offers guided tours, and Sandringham, Queen Elizabeth's official Christmas base, allows admission to the house and gardens.

There are plenty of events in the lead up to Christmas at a number of Historic Houses' homes and gardens, to get you in the festive spirit. Visit the individual websites or click here to find out more about Christmas events.
