50 things to do before you're 11 3/4 - Beach scavenger hunt tracker packs

Pick up your tracker pack and see what you can uncover on the beach.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

On your scavenger hunt you'll look for fossils, explore the high tide mark and create some wild art. We'll give you information, tools and guidance at the start - then head out on the beach and see what treasures you can find. Activities are self-led so you can take as long as you need to participate. Donations welcome. Suggested donation £2.

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
