Without National Lottery players, the £7.9billion of funding awarded to more than 43,000 heritage projects over the last 24 years would not have been possible.
This is the second year HLF and the National Lottery have run a Christmas free offer campaign to say thank you to National Lottery players. In addition to heritage free offers, for the first time this year there will also be free offers at arts, sports and community venues – all recipients of National Lottery funding.
Details of all the offers can be found on our interactive map.
Heritage highlights this Christmas include:
- Free entry to more than 100 National Trust sites in England, Wales and Northern Ireland on Wednesday-Friday, 5-7 December
- Free entry to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, HMS Caroline, Fleet Air Arm Museum and The National Museum of the Royal Navy Hartlepool all week, 3-9 December
