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

Please note...

Booking is no longer required to visit the garden and house routes, but you may wish to plan your trip for later in the day for a quieter visit. Otherwise, please expect queues to enter the house at busy times. Under 5's enter free. 

We have pay and display parking in our car park; charges will apply for non-members: Either £1.50 for up to an hour or £5 for the whole day. You can pay by cash or use the PayByPhone parking app or you can phone PayByPhone to set up an account and pay by payment card. You can also buy a ticket from the Park Cafe, Plant Centre or Cycle Hire. Free parking for members (please scan your membership card to obtain and display a ticket in your vehicle).
