National Trust-Giant's Causeway

Volunteer Tour Guide

The National Trust was founded in 1895 by three people who saw the importance of our nation’s heritage and open spaces and wanted to preserve them for everyone to enjoy. More than 120 years later, these values are still at the heart of everything we do.

We look after special places throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland for ever, for everyone.
