I’m Vicky, I live in Hertfordshire and, having been a National Trust member for most of my life, when my Nan died, I knew that I wanted to put some of the money she left me to purchasing life membership of the National Trust. So I did!

I want to make the most of my membership, but I don’t want it to cost the earth. The National Trust handbook often has details of how to get to their properties by public transport, so that’s what this blog is about – seeing how easy it is to do this. I foresee a lot of walking in my future!
Hertfordshire is not a good place to live for National Trust properties – there are very few! So my adventures will generally involve more than just a bus – probably a train too – and therefore documenting these journeys may take a while, as the cost of train travel quickly adds up.
I also hope that by writing this blog and sharing my adventures, I might encourage more people to use public transport to visit National Trust properties where possible. Sometimes the information in the handbook/on the website/in the app is a bit brief and it can be daunting using public transport in an area you don’t know. With any luck, the details I hope to be able to share will make it less of a stress!
