Tudor Christmas in the Cromwellian

The Cromwellian building at Greys Court will be showing how a Tudor Christmas would have been celebrated.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Greys Court was first mentioned in 1086, and so has years of history attached to it. To help celebrate the wider history of Greys Court, the Cromwellian building will be focusing on the Tudor-era of Greys Court, and displaying how the festive season would have been celebrated in this time period. With sumptuous decorations, a traditional Tudor feast on display and Tudor-themed, children's dressing up costumes, there's much to help you experience what a Tudor Christmas would have been like.

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 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.

  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 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.

Please note...

Free cup of tea for those arriving by public transport, bicycle or on foot.
