Historic Houses Association

The HHA represents the interests of Britain's historic houses, castles and gardens that remain in private ownership.

The Association represents over 1500 such properties, the majority of which provide some form of public access.

Around 350 open regularly to the public on a commercial basis, attracting between them over 12 million visitors each year. Many more open on an occasional basis.

There are more privately owned houses open to the public than those in the care of the National Trust, English Heritage and their equivalents in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland put together.

The costs of maintaining them thereby preserving not only the heritage they represent but also the associated industry they sustain, is huge and is met by private individuals.

The Historic Houses Association lists over 350 of Britain's finest and most interesting properties to visit.


Britain's historic houses, castles, gardens and parkland are amongst the most visited tourist attractions in the country.

Many of these are in private ownership - lived in and cared for by private individuals and families, often descendants of the people who built them.
