Winter Walkies

Explore Osterley's formal garden with your four-legged friends

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Come down to the garden kiosk, pick up one of our leads and explore the wintery landscape. There’s always something beautiful in our gardens, and this time of year is the best time to visit our winter garden, or work off some energy with a stroll around the mile-long Long Walk.

Upon arrival, swap your lead at the garden kiosk for one of ours and explore the formal gardens and long walk.

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
