Celebrities, including the actor Jude Law, the presenter Alex Jones and the singer Gary Kemp, have posted photos of places that are special to them on a specially created Facebook app called the Special Places Project of National Trust. The app includes explanations from the celebrities about why they like the places, along with contributions from National Trust volunteers and members of the public. The campaign is the result of research that found 84 per cent of Britons have a favourite place that positively affects their wellbeing and happiness. The Facebook app and the idea behind it is a simple and appealing way to get people to think about the National Trust and the importance of heritage sites in general.

Jude shared Cliveden House in Berkshire as his special place.

One of the great scenes of Sherlock Holmes was shot at Cliveden House – It’s such a gorgeous place. I had no idea the National Trust looked after the gardens and grounds there, they are glorious and I love spending time wandering around them. We can rest assured the Trust will look after them for generations to come.
