The National Trust

The National Trust is a charity founded in 1895 by Octavia Hill, Sir Robert Hunter and Canon Hardwicke Rawnsley, three people who saw the importance of our nation’s heritage and open spaces, and wanted to protect them for everyone to enjoy.

As well as doing a terrific job at maintaining the nations heritage, the National Trust has fishing rights to a divers set of rivers and lakes across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

If you are considering holidaying in the UK this year, odds are you'll probably be very close to a National Trust day ticket water.
