Oxford Centre of the National Trust



The Oxford Centre, founded in 1968, has members living in Oxford together with the surrounding areas. We have helped financially to enhance the visitors' enjoyment of properties in the London and South East region. Each year we also give to the Neptune Coastline Campaign. If you would like to be part of our group, with the opportunity to meet new people with similar interests in the world of heritage, then we would like to hear from you.


Membership is open to members of the National Trust, affiliated organisations or holders of current National Trust Volunteer Cards. The annual fee is £10 for single membership. Family membership is £10 for the first member and £5 for each additional member at the same address. As a member you will receive full details of our programme three times a year. You can also attend lecture meetings at a cost of £5 each, which includes tea/coffee. We have illustrated talks from October to April covering a wide range of subjects, including National trust topics, conservation, heritage, travel and items of local history. You can join us at any of the lecture meetings, which are advertised in the Oxford Times on the Thursday previous to the meeting - just turn up at Magdalen College Auditorium, Longwall Street and introduce yourself to a member of the committee at the door. We also offer regular outings throughout the year to places of interest such as National Trust properties and other houses and gardens, the theatre, museums and exhibitions. There are monthly local walks arranged and there is an annual holiday to a different part of the country. Social events include a winter and summer meal at a local hotel or restaurant.
