Erddig spring garden

Enjoy nature's greatest show in Erddig's 13.5-acre walled garden as waves of spring highlights wash over the garden.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

First to arrive are snowdrops which then give way to daffodils.

The elegant white petals and orange-rimmed cup of the Narcissus Poeticus are a delight to see as are the native wildflower, Fritillaria Meleagris.

Next come the fruit blossoms in the orchard and the bold tulips in the Victorian parterre bedding scheme along with a carpet of wild garlic as it flowers through Big Wood.

You can find all this, plus much more, in our garden this spring.

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

 

*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.
