Apple Day

Discover all things 'apple' at Gunby Hall & Gardens.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Gunby Hall & Gardens welcomes visitors to its annual Apple Day where you can discover an impressive number of different apple varieties grown in our gardens. Bring your own apples to be identified as well as expert advice on pruning and general fruit tree care. Why not have a go at pressing some apples and drinking super fresh juice? There will be craft and trade stalls with something for everybody. Our tea-room will have many apple based treats to enjoy and the hall is open all 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
