A new Top Trumps game featuring some of England's historic buildings has launched online and in Trust shops.

The game includes 30 historic buildings going head to head in such fields as acreage, film and TV appearances, hauntings and cups of tea consumed.

The buildings include the 18th century hexadecagon house A La Ronde in Devon, Belfast's Crown Bar, Chirk Castle in Wrexham and Basildon Park in Berkshire.

The game follows on from the successful National Trust version of Monopoly, which was launched last year giving people the chance to buy up their favourite places and develop visitor centres and holiday cottages.

"The 30 properties were selected to show the great variety of the historic places looked after by the Trust," said Alan Parris, buyer for the National Trust. "Games are a fun way of engaging people in what we do - but, better still, people also have the chance to visit and see for themselves."

A new National Trust game of British Wildlife Top Trumps is also available, featuring 30 creatures living on Trust land such as adders and raft spiders.
