We believe that membership in national trust offers a cheaper price than English Heritage membership, as they look after more places, have mutual agreements in places around the world and have parking for forests, landscapes, beaches and coastlines throughout the country. Many people choose the National Trust for Scotland. It`s cheaper than joining the National Trust, and thanks to reciprocal agreements, it also gives you free admission to all the same places and parking lots as the normal National Trust membership. I agree that membership of the NT is worth it. I haven`t looked any further at the mutual agreements with NT, but should. This encouraged me to buy NT membership.

What this means in practice is that English Heritage conducts archaeological excavations, preserves ancient monuments and buildings, and manages historical sites. Most of the UK`s most famous historic buildings and monuments (Z.B. Stonehenge) are under the tutelage of English Heritage.
Many of the sites that EH manages are ruins (castles, stone circles and medieval monasteries, for example), although some properties are majestic houses such as Audley End House in Essex. English Heritage, or the Historic Buildings and Monuments Commission for England, as it is officially known, is widely known as the unit that oversees the maintenance of England`s national collection of sites and monuments. Maintaining the nation`s archaeological and historical heritage is only part of what they do. Other activities include education, contract research, the advice of all kinds of people and entities, through the heritage of England, from the government to people who own listed buildings. It all costs money, a lot of that; and, as a quasi-autonomous non-governmental ORGANISATION, it receives a significant share of its operating costs from the State and, ultimately, from the British taxpayer. To supplement the legal income, it benefits from the English Heritage, among other fundraising activities, paying persons, to visit many sites under its protection.
