Guided moat walk at Bodiam Castle : 26 March to 28 October 2018, 12.15 & 2.15pm

Get out and about with one of our guides on these short but informative walks around the castle grounds, where you will discover some of the secrets of Bodiam's past.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

These short walks of 35-45 minutes around the castle grounds will give you a bit more insight into the location of the castle and the grounds around it. Discover about the mill pond and why there is a World War II pillbox in the grounds, plus some of the hidden secrets in the grounds. This walk will mainly be on gravelled paths, but these can be uneven and wet in adverse weather. Pace and area covered on this walk will depend on group attending.

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 or
  • Standard admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you the Gift Aid Admission prices. But it's entirely up to you which ticket you choose. If you want the Standard Admission instead, just let us know when you come to pay.

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: Payment of the additional percentage donation is entirely voluntary, so if you prefer to pay the standard admission please advise our reception staff at the till point.

  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 donations must be supported by a valid Gift Aid declaration and a Gift Aid declaration can only cover donations made by an individual for him/herself or for him/herself and members of his/her family.

Offer tickets are applicable to those arriving via the Kent & East Sussex Railway. Visitors will be required to show their travel tickets from this provider.

Car Park: £3.00 per car
