Silent space in the Tower Garden

Imagine being in a green and tranquil space where you feel free to switch off your phone, stop talking and just relax for a moment or two. The Tower Garden will be a silent space on selected Sundays for visitors to do just that.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Silent space is an initiative building on the success of a pilot study last year. The aim is to create spaces where people can relax, switch off from the hectic world we live in, not be disturbed by the human voice and engage with nature.

Between 10:30am and 12:30pm visitors will be asked to switch off their phones and remain silent when spending time in the Tower Garden on certain Sundays throughout the year

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...

Free cup of tea for those arriving by public transport, bicycle or on foot.
