There are lots of beautiful, large houses in Britain. Many of them were built hundreds of years ago. In the  past, they were owned by very rich families. Today many of them are owned by an organization called The National Trust, which has been created to look after them. The houses are kept in perfect condition, and visitors are allowed to look round them. It’s interesting to learn how different life was in an old house.  Milk wasn’t kept in the fridge, because they didn’t have fridges! Washing machines have been only invented very recently, so washing was done by hand. In some cases, the house are still lived in today. When this happens, visitors are only shown part of the house. The private rooms are kept closed to the public. These houses often have beautiful gardens, too. The gardens are looked after by professional gardeners.

You usually have to pay to look round National Trust houses. Members of the National Trust are given a discount. This year millions of people will be given the chance to see what life in an old country house was like.
