- Booking essential
- Admission applies
Come and find out about our connection with Shell. The 1930s saw the arrival of new advertising. Shell was at the forefront of companies, from transport to department stores, using the talents of modern artists to create striking and memorable advertising posters that associated their products with the modern age. See the first iconic Shell posters displayed exclusively at Upton House. Join our volunteer Jane as she shows posters from the 1920s and 1930s - "The Golden Age of Motoring".

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:
|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|
