Hundreds of Houses and Gardens to visit

Hundreds of the most beautiful historic houses, castles and gardens in Britain are still privately-owned family homes. Now you can uncover the secrets and stories of the families who have lived in these special places – and get a glimpse into the lives of those who still do.

The HHA represents more properties open to the public than the National Trust and English Heritage put together and we welcome around 13 million visitors a year. Search for a place to visit, find a fabulous wedding venue or seek out a unique place to stay. You don't have to join us to enjoy visiting these beautiful places but for a small fee you can visit as many as you like for free! Join Now
