My favourite item - Furniture

Have you ever wondered what it takes to look after the objects in our care?

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

This month, as part of our conservation in action, we're focussing on how we care for furniture.

Around the house you'll see we've highlighted staff and volunteers' favourite items along with how we take care for them. For more detailed information, why not pop along to our Housekeeping day on Weds 19 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:

  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
