Historic Houses Association Directory and List of Members
is published annually. It consists of over 150 pages of information, including an A-Z of member properties, a regional breakdown and details of Family, Next Generation and Corporate Members. Also included are details of museums, societies, trusts and associations involved in heritage and conservation, making this a very useful publication frequently referred to by members during the year.
Published in spring and distributed to all Full, Family, Next Generation and Corporate Members, the Directory offers an excellent opportunity for promotion which can be used to maximum effect by taking an advertisement, thus ensuring that members are reminded of the services you provide for the next twelve months in a publication which is used as a constant source of reference.

Formed in 1973, the HHA represents a group of highly individualistic and diverse properties ranging from palaces and castles to small manor houses.
The Association has in itís membership over 1,600 such properties, including virtually all the finest historic houses and estates in Britain.
The Association's concerns include not only the buildings themselves but also their contents and surrounding landscapes. Broad advice is available to Members via its quarterly magazine Historic House, advisory manuals, a programme of seminars and through a team of specialist consultants. Key issues in which the HHA is currently engaged include Capital Gains Tax relief, VAT on listed buildings repairs, Inheritance Tax, planning consent for listed buildings, statutory listing of chattels, statutory listing of gardens.
There are four categories of membership:
Private owners of houses and gardens throughout the United Kingdom, including corporate or institutional bodies. The properties will be architecturally important, sometimes with historic connections and generally listed.
Next Generation Members
Sons and daughters of owners or individuals in line to inherit (whether the present owner belongs to the Association or not).
Professional and commercial companies, heritage bodies, museums and galleries, curators and conservators whose business is involved with historic houses/landscapes.
Individuals or families who do not own historic houses but who have an interest in and enjoy visiting them and their gardens and subscribe to the aims of the Association. They form a body of enlightened support.
