An Enchanted Winter

Get into the festive spirit with Christmas lights, decorations, and seasonal treats at Ormesby Hall.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Step inside the hall for an instant Christmas feeling as you follow the tale of 'Patience the Polar Bear' on her festive adventure through an enchanted woodland to visit her friends. The rooms will be adorned with sparkling lights, nature inspired decorations and the fresh sweet smell of winter foliage from the garden.

Enjoy one of our special hot drinks: millionaire shortbread latte or gingerbread cappuccino in the café and warm yourself by the fire pit in the atmospheric courtyard.

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
