The National Trust will, where possible, be opening many of its gardens and parks for free to encourage the nation to enjoy open space, if appropriate, during the pandemic, while adhering to the government’s social distancing guidance.

So, alongside the coast and countryside, you can explore various parks with your camera which means you can still enjoy a spot of landscape and garden photography. Cafes won't be open, though, so do pack a flask and some sandwiches! 

“While we will close our indoor areas to help fight the spread of coronavirus, we recognise that people are likely to need access to open space and to nature, beauty and history," says Director-General Hilary McGrady. "Over the coming weeks, we will do all that we can to keep on providing public benefit through caring for places and giving people access wherever possible."




By Friday (20 March 2020) The National Trust is hoping to have a plan in place as to what will be available to the public. As you can imagine, many factors have to be considered when continuing to open, including whether the garden or park allows enough space for adequate social distancing.

Here in North America, we are being discouraged from visiting public parks and playgrounds until the COVID-19 is finally under control.

We are limiting our trips to groceries and other necessities, and cancelling all family and friends get-togethers.

There are still people at the stores and other public places who ignore the personal spacing rules the government has decreed.

We can use e-mail, Facebook and Skype/Facetime if we want interaction.

However our new (Jan 14) shelter cat Wilbur is not happy when my time on FB is considered a reduction in my time interacting with him. Wink

Normally, he's quite loving !
