Client Overview

The National Trust is a charity that works to preserve and protect historic places and spaces throughout Northern Ireland, England and Wales, this includes houses, buildings and gardens as well as coastal areas and countryside.


Most National Trust sites are environmentally sensitive, some are difficult to access and every National Trust site has a large fluctuation in the number of visitors it receives throughout the year. Fluctuating visitor numbers and seasonal variances throughout the year requires Viltra to design bespoke solutions that are unique to each National Trust site, ensuring key tourism sites are compliant all year round, irrespective of the volume of visitors or weather conditions.

Our team liaises with the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) on the National Trust’s behalf and is responsible for every aspect of their compliance, Viltra is proud to exceed compliance rates across all National Trust sites in Northern Ireland with DAERA sampling on a quarterly basis.
