Join or renew as an HHA Friend

Discover some of Britain’s most special places!

As an HHA Friend, you can visit hundreds of privately-owned houses, castles and gardens free during normal opening hours. They include internationally known properties such as Highclere Castle in Berkshire (as seen in Downton Abbey) and smaller manors such as Markenfield Hall in Yorkshire. Many of the properties are still lived in, often by families who have owned them for centuries, and many include exquisite gardens. Each is unique, giving you an unmatched insight into much-loved homes and their social and historical contexts.

As an HHA Friend you also receive:

  • Our quarterly magazine Historic House which is packed with news of the Association, its member properties and Britain’s heritage
  • Opportunities to join specially arranged visits to properties, including some which are not usually open to the public, with refreshments or lunch included in the booking fee

HHA-affiliated properties welcome 24 million visitors a year and also support the equivalent of 41,000 jobs. The HHA advises, promotes and represents these properties, to ensure their survival for future generations to enjoy. Your support as an HHA Friend is crucial to this work and is much appreciated.
