Harrison's Garden by Luke Jerram

A feast for the eyes and ears - This exciting art installation of 2000 clocks forms an imagined landscape in Penrhyn Castle's derelict, unloved rooms.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Join us for the finale of this touring installation at National Trust properties.

The installation has taken inspiration from the clock maker John Harrison, known today for creating the marine chronometer, which made it possible to tell the time at sea.

The clocks form patterns and shapes along the floors and surfaces - set to different times so that visitors will hear a musical delight of ticking, clicking and chiming throughout the day.

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
