Where will your membership take you?


INTO has been hard at work with National Trusts and heritage organisations across the world to make membership go further.

As part of INTO’s mission to ‘promote the conservation and enhancement of the heritage of all nations for the benefit of the people of the world and future generations’, we’ve developed a new reciprocal visiting scheme called INTO Places

What is INTO Places?

Organisations extend complimentary admission to the members of other participating organisations – and in return offer their members free entry to over a thousand amazing National Trust places around the world.

“INTO brings together a diverse family of organisations to share ideas, resources and experiences.  And one of the ways of strengthening what it means to be part of the INTO family is reciprocal visiting. We are delighted that membership cards are now acting as a passport, opening doors and gates, porticos and porches across the world!”
- Dame Fiona Reynolds, Chair of INTO.

Today, INTO has over 100 members. Although different in size, age and emphasis, these organisations all care about special places, protecting them for everyone and for ever. Together as INTO, they unite people in their concern for heritage, wherever it is in the world.  

“We might call ourselves ‘National’ Trusts but in fact, conservation can’t be neatly parcelled up into national packages. It’s wonderful to see people and organisations coming together under the INTO banner to support one another and show solidarity,” said Catherine Leonard, INTO Secretary-General.

“Whilst entry is free, we encourage people to consider making a donation or doing some retail therapy as this really helps support the host organisation.  And we emphasise the importance of joining your local organisation. Think global, act local!” she added.
