National Trust expands Touring Pass initiative for overseas visitors
The National Trust (NT) has announced it has expanded its Touring Pass initiative for overseas visitors, which now allows for the pass to be bought "on the day".
Touring Passes, which cover NT-operated sites over a seven- or 14-day period, had previously only been available through the trust's online retail outlet, national tourism agency VisitBritain or selected overseas travel agents.
However, the initiative has been expanded to capitalise on the expected boost in tourism numbers from the 2012 Games and is to operate at selected sites in south east and south west England until 3 September.
NT visitor experience director Tony Berry said: "We hope to make it easier than ever before for international visitors to discover great destinations and the importance of the National Trust's work to conserve these places."
