A round up of National Trust reviews

Moseley old hall

We recently bought a family pass for the National Trust and I am now possibly a little obsessed with visiting different places, leafing through the brochure, planning trips and reading reviews trying to find the best places. So I figured if this is what I’m doing then maybe other people do this too and although the National Trust website is brilliant all the blurbs are written from a PR stance to encourage you to visit and what I wanted was reviews by parents, real experiences, and top tips, so I decided to collate as many as possible and put them all into one place to make it easier to find.

All the below reviews have been written by parent bloggers based on their real experiences after family days out. The following reviews and this post have not been written in collaboration with the National Trust is a full of honest opinions and own personal photographs.
