Landmark Futures - apply by Sunday 5 November

A new scheme that offers free stays in Landmark Trust buildings to higher education institutions and other qualifying organisations

We want time spent in our beautiful historic places and natural landscapes to enable ‘light bulb’ moments across the field of human activity, both collaboratively within a study field and also for individual students. The scheme looks to 'futures' in the widest sense: to the future of particular disciplines, of each participating individual – and to Landmark’s own future, as we introduce a mostly younger audience to the experience of staying in our buildings.

The Landmark Trust has rescued and restored some 200 buildings historic buildings and then lets them for self-catering holidays to pay for maintenance. We care for 198 buildings across Britain, with a handful in Europe, which sleep up to 18 people. Futures stays are therefore for small groups of up to 8-10 people and should be used for academic purposes: study, discussion, teaching, field study, writing, music etc. Landmark provides the accommodation, including the cost of housekeeping and services; those staying will be responsible for all travel and food costs.
