About us

The Landmark Trust is a charity that rescues important buildings that would otherwise be lost.

Giving new life to buildings at risk

Freston Tower

We take on historic places in danger and carefully and sensitively restore them. By making them available for holidays, we make sure they can be enjoyed by all, both today and for future generations. We have in our care nearly 200 buildings in Britain and several in Italy and France.

Though they range from the sober to the spectacular, all our buildings are rich in history and atmosphere. They include picturesque pavilions and medieval long-houses, artillery forts and Gothick follies, clan chiefs’ castles and cotton weavers’ cottages, the homes of great writers and the creations of great architects, from Browning to Boswell, from Pugin to Palladio.

 

‘I'm glad the
Gothic Temple exists
so ordinary people
can stay in places
as extraordinary as this.’
