Which National Trust places can you visit from Bournemouth?

You are spoilt for choice when it comes to wonderful National Trust places to visit from your base in Bournemouth.

You'll find everything from an island home to peacocks and red squirrels, ancient coasts and hidden gems to a 1000 year old castle, cottages and an Italian inspired palace.  These places make a fabulous day out and they're all within a one hour drive (please allow extra time on busy days and special events).

Individual entry prices vary, but we recommend buying an annual membership and get free entry to these and over 500 other properties across the UK.

Membership also gets you free parking, a National Trust handbook and magazine.
