LONDON MEMBERS' CENTRE
( Charity Number SC 027207 )

The London Members' Centre was established in 1979 with the aim of bringing together like-minded people who share a love of Scotland, its culture and its heritage.

Membership is open to all National Trust for Scotland and National Trust members, not just those in London and the South East, and currently costs just £12 per annum ( reduced to £10 per annum if paid by standing order ).

The Centre has over 350 members who enjoy a very full programme of social events, lectures and visits, some to places not normally open to the public. There is a charge for each visit, part of our fund-raising activities for the National Trust for Scotland, as a result of which we have been able to provide support for projects at many NTS properties throughout Scotland.

Why not join us? Contact details for membership and our current visits programme are given below.

In June 2018 we had a Spring Tour to Shetland. A short report can be seen by following this link.

Programme November 2018 to December 2019

Visits are open to all members of the London Members' Centre. Details of visits for the forthcoming quarter are included in our newsletters which are sent out quarterly. Application forms for each visit are included therein. As many of our visits are oversubscribed members are advised to return their application forms as soon as practicable.
