Silent Space at Acorn Bank
Acorn Bank is taking part in Silent Space, a project that promotes stopping, switching off phones, cameras and social media, and just enjoying an oasis of quiet away from our often hectic lives.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
The Herb Garden, enclosed within brick walls, is a space which feels calm and reflective. Sit under the Portuguese Quince tree and read a book, or just enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. Join a silent space here every Tuesday in June and September.
The Pool in the woodland is ideal for sitting quietly and watching the wildlife. Switch off from the hustle and bustle and get in touch with nature. Join a silent space here every Thursday in June and September.

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:
|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|
