Child Suite Tours

Discover the unseen spaces of Osterley House on our top floor tours.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Visit the family rooms of Osterley House and hear the history of the Child family, the wealthy bankers who commissioned Robert Adam to renovate the house into the Georgian party manor, as it remains to this day.

Spaces are limited and must be reserved on the day of your visit, so request tickets from our VE team at the House entrance as soon as you arrive at Osterley. Tours are free for members; normal admission applies for non-members, and tours are subject to volunteer availability.

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
