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

 

*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.

Please note...

Entry is as part of a pre-booked guided tour only. Additional charge for the minibus shuttle applies to all visitors (including members): adult £5, child £2.50 (not subject to Gift Aid).

Other
Entry to the house is free for National Trust members with a valid card and children under five, but all pay for minibus seats. Your online booking pays for the minibus only. On the day you need to go to the Kiosk at Claremont Landscape Garden and show your membership card (members) or pay for entry to the house (non-members) and receive your admission ticket before boarding the minibus. Visitors must provide car seats for children under the age of three which they must store at The Homewood during their visit. Large bags, backpacks and pushchairs are not allowed in the house. Please allow plenty of time for travel to Claremont as traffic is often heavy and latecomers cannot often be accommodated on later tours. Please also allow time for parking as our small car park can be very busy. Alternative (not National Trust) parking a short walk from the site. There are no facilities at The Homewood. Café (10am to 5.30pm) and toilets at Claremont. Food and drink may not be taken on minibus.
