National Trust accused of duping tourists to pay to see FREE Giant’s Causeway; Caroline McGuire; The Sun

UK – Giant’s Causeway and Causeway Coast

Critics say “misleading” signs erected last year by the National Trust are convincing tourists they have to shell out to see the Giant’s Causeway

VISITORS to one of Britain’s most famous landmarks claim they are being duped into paying to see the attraction by the National Trust, despite the fact it’s FREE.

More than one million people trek to the Giant’s Causeway every year to walk on interlocking basalt columns left by an ancient volcanic eruption.

But critics say “misleading” signs erected last year by the National Trust are convincing tourists they have to shell out to see it.

The signs warn visitors that they are entering the Unesco World Heritage site with the National Trust’s “permission”.

However, although the trust does operate a visitors’ centre at the site, members of the public can visit the iconic coastline free of charge via public paths.

Entrance to the visitors’ centre at the site, which opened in 2012 at a cost of £18.5m, can cost up to £11.50 per adult or £28.75 for a family of five.
