Can you help Comet the reindeer get ready for Christmas?

Come and help Comet the reindeer find the stars in the grounds of Lacock Abbey to guide Father Christmas' Christmas Eve journey, and help him find his way to all of the right chimneys.

The trail runs every day (excluding Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day) from Sat 27 Nov to Sun 2 Jan between 11am and 4pm. Last entry 3.15pm.

In Lacock village, see how many of Comet's reindeer friends you can spot.

As a thank you, you'll be able to take home a special reindeer decoration to hang on your tree.

What is Gift Aid?

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
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.

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:

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00

There is a car park charge for non-members of £4.50 a day.
