February Half Term Fun

Make your own bird feeder to welcome feathered friends to your garden or pick up a trail from Visitor Welcome and go exploring!

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

This half term why not escape outdoors to see what you can find on the estate? There's a special nature trail to follow, and on selected days you can also give your feathered friends a helping hand by making a pine cone bird feeder from our Christmas display. Please be aware we will be using peanut butter and nuts and seeds in this activity.

Why not join our Ranger team for a fun afternoon of wild art making on Thursday? 12-3pm

Or come along to the Ox Yard for a fused glass workshop?

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
