The secrets of Truckle Wood guided walk

The first in a trial of new guided walks around the Tyntesfield estate, this walk introduces you to some of the secrets of Truckle Wood which is full of spring flowers at this time of year.

  • Booking essential
  • Free event (admission applies)

This spring we are trialling a series of new guided walks around the Tyntesfield estate covering topics from the history of the house, the development of the garden, and the wildlife that has made Tyntesfield its home.

This walk around Truckle Wood introduces you to some of the secrets of this less well known part of the estate.

As this is a trial, we would be grateful for your feedback and will be handing out feedback forms at the end of the walk along with complimentary hot drink vouchers.

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...

Car park charge of £3.00 per vehicle, per day. Parking is free for National Trust members with a valid car sticker and membership card. Free parking with designated spaces for Blue Badge holders, coaches and motorcyles.
