An Update on Coronavirus

Dear Members and Friends,

The ongoing spread of Covid-19 has presented us all with new challenges. We are committed to the health and safety of our members, friends, speakers, and staff. We have begun hosting virtual events which you can learn more about here: If you would like to added to our email list, please write to

Due to government guidelines, houses, parklands, and gardens at the National Trust remain closed, but in order to make it possible for people to enjoy and experience natural landscapes, the Trust has begun to reopen some coast and countryside car parks. To ensure everyone’s safety, a booking system has been introduced at some of those car parks. To find out what properties are opening and how to book a car park, visit, which will be updated as more open.

Now more than ever, Royal Oak needs your support. Please join or renew your membership. You can continue to make donations either at or by contacting us at

Your loyalty to Royal Oak and to our commitment to the mission of he National Trust remains paramount to us, especially during times of global unease. We appreciate your understanding during these unexpected events and send our best wishes for you, your family, and your community.

Royal Oak would like to thank you for all you have done to support the preservation and conservation projects we help the National Trust undertake each year.

All of this would not be possible without the money we receive for the annual fund from supporters like you.
