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:
|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|

Our car parks are pay and display. Members can park for free by scanning their membership card at a machine to obtain and then display a ticket in your vehicle. For non-members parking is £1 for up to 1 hour, £3 for up to 3 hours and £5 for over 3 hours. You can pay by cash at the machine, by downloading the PayByPhone parking app or by visiting Visitor Reception or The Edgcumbe tea-room to pay by card.
National Trust members visit for free.
