All Of The National Trust Sites In Yorkshire Staying Open This Lockdown

Lockdown is upon us until the 3rd of December, and people have been told to stay home. The first lockdown was a learning curve for a lot of people and was thankfully in the midst of spring and summer, which the made whole thing a little easier. Exercise was a crucial part of keeping spirits and morale up during the first lockdown, so we’ve researched which National Trust sites in Yorkshire that are open this lockdown to help those who can, get some fresh air this autumn while we wait for the R-number to drop.

The government announced a four-week lockdown, which is a little different to the last one back in March. National Trust houses, shops and holiday accommodation in Yorkshire are now closed in line with government guidance. But what’s open? Outdoor spaces, including, coast and countryside, are open as well as gardens. You can still enjoy takeaway food and drink from cafes and food outlets as well. Below is a list of National Trust spots you can still, visit this lockdown
