Advertising in Historic House
The magazine provides vital information to historic house owners about the issues that concern them, and is used as a method of communication for Members of the Association and for those offering products and services a means of contact with potential and existing clients. 

The Members of the Association collectively represent a large and financially significant market when one takes into account the wide range of services and products they buy for the preservation, upkeep and maintenance of the properties and estates that they manage; and also the leisure facilities that many provide for the entertainment of the public visiting their properties.
