It’s going to be a beautiful beginning to October, and what better way to celebrate the autumn sun than at one of Britain’s fabulous National Trust properties.
This weekend, Radio Times is offering its magazine readers a free family visit to one of the country’s 200 historic houses and gardens, worth up to £30.
You can live out your dreams of aristocratic splendour Downton-style in stately homes such as Blickling Hall, Norfolk – or become an Antiques Master with a guided tour around Penrhyn Castle, Gwynedd.
Or if it’s a Gardener’s World you’re looking for, there’s a wealth of beautiful and rare plants and shrubs to be enjoyed in the grounds of any one of the Trust’s homes.
So to turn £1.20 into a day of glorious escapism, just complete the voucher on page 50 of this week’s edition of Radio Times magazine and present it at the participating National Trust property of your choice on 1 or 2 October 2011.
And there’s more. Join National Trust as part of your visit this weekend, and you’ll get two months’ membership free…
Yet another reason to head on down to the newsagent today.
