The Friends of the HHA are much appreciated by both the HHA and by our Member properties. The financial and moral support of Friends helps the HHA to advise, promote and represent the views of privately-owned historic properties. In recognition of this support, Friends receive free admission to hundreds of historic houses and gardens which open regularly to the public.
If you intend to visit one specific property regularly, we recommend you consider buying their season ticket, if one is available. However, for visiting a wide variety of properties within the UK, HHA Friends membership offers outstanding value for money.
View our list of Member properties offering free access to Friends.

- Our quarterly magazine Historic House, which brings you closer to the joys and tribulations of running a historic house
