Find out about Gift Aid admission

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points. Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission; or
  • Standard admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you the Gift Aid Admission prices. But it's entirely up to you which ticket you choose. If you want the Standard Admission instead, just let us know when you come to pay.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid* — an extra 25 per cent — potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below: Payment of the additional percentage donation is entirely voluntary, so if you prefer to pay the standard admission please advise our reception staff at the till point.

Money raised from this scheme goes towards vital conservation and restoration projects at the place you're visiting.

Most National Trust members already pay their subscriptions using Gift Aid, helping us to reclaim many millions of pounds every year at no extra cost to themselves. If you are a member and are not already paying in this way, you can make a Gift Aid declaration to the Trust online. Or you can make your declaration by simply telephoning our Supporter Services Centre on 0844 800 1895.

*Gift Aid donations must be supported by a valid Gift Aid declaration and a Gift Aid declaration can only cover donations made by an individual for him/herself or for him/herself and members of his/her family.

Admission price for cafe & shop

Now that we have relocated Gibside's car parks and visitor reception near to the entrance, our cafe and shop have moved inside the area where our admission price applies. National Trust members get free entry as usual.

Farmers market remains free to visit

We are continuing to offer free entry to our farmers market on the first and third Saturday every month. The market place, including our cafe and shop, will be outside the area where our admission price applies on these days.

Enjoy free entry, become a member

If you visit regularly, why not consider joining us? All the income we receive from your membership will stay at Gibside and enable us to continue restoring this special estate.

Over a year, it works out at about £4.50 a month for one person, £7 for a couple or £8 for a family and this gives you free entry to hundreds of other beautiful places too.
