Thanks Janis, we arrive at Terminal One and the TIC is opposite the Car Rental Desks so it will be easy to check out. The only problem is the time we arrive, somewhere I thought I read the TICs closed at 23:00.

yeah - I doubt it will be open that late. But worth checking at least . . .

We have just obtained a 'household' heritage pass here in Australia - allowing us entry for up to four people on one card. Could you possibly upgrade your membership so that she could get in on your card? Might be worth the phonecall/email?
Next thing you might like to know is, that with our membership, we got an international property guide - it states that if you purchase/get a National trust Handbook (available from National Trust offices/properties ans high-streeet shops throughout the UK) it will give comprehensive details on each property - hopefully inc. prices for admission/credit card avail. info. for each property.
If you need quick info about charges & if they take credit card - send an email to the national trust directly with a list of the properties you intend to visit asking the questions you need to ask & I'm sure they'll email you the details.
Their email address is: [email protected]

All the best

Ronael: The National Trust is great, but it's pass only allows entry to Nat'l Trust properties. It doesn't cover English Heritage, Cadw (the Welsh heritage org.), or any of the many privately owned sites.

Information Desks @ LHR ~ Terminal 1: In the arrivals area, near the car hire desks and meeting point (open 06:00 – 23:00)

Maybe we can get it early in the morning if the information desk is closed by the time we arrive at LHR.

BH said you cannot buy one at Hampton Palace.

Our BH guidebook mailed with our passes, does not seem to have anything about CC.

I have not been able to attend any of the Royal Oak lectures to-date. I do enjoy getting their newsletter, along with the National Trust magazine...both are part of the membership, along with card admitting member to NT site and a NT parking pass.

There are 2 upcoming lectures in Boston offered by the Royal Oak Foundation. Unfortunately, the first one (which I'm interested in) on John Soane Museum/collection is completely sold out.
