English Heritage Pass vs National Trust touring pass

Jump to last reply

DD and I will soon be touring England by car for 11 days. I have read a lot about these passes on this and other sites and still have some questions. Since the Great British Heritage Pass has been discontinued, I want to make sure I have updated info.

1. People like National Trust membership because it provides free parking at many places, for instance, some coastal sites in Cornwall. Does the NT touring pass also provide this parking benefit?

2. On some site someone expressed the opinion that EH attractions admission prices provided better value for money than NT attractions; so it might make sense to get NT pass and pay as you go for EH sites. Anyone agree or disagree?

3. Sorry to quote without attribution, but in my notes I have the following:
"If you join English Heritage at an English Heritage site you get the entrance fee for that site refunded so make sure your first visit is the most expensive." Is that (still) true?

4. If we go for the NT touring pass, I know we can purchase them in London. Just want to clarify that we would get passes immediately - no waiting period, right?

Thanks for any any help.
