This autumn the park is at the centre of a mystery whodunnit. Travel back in time and reveal the mystery of the stolen Mr. Hatfeild birthday’s cake!

  • Booking not needed
  • Admission applies

This autumn set off on our first whodunnit interactive trail at Morden Hall Park.

Travel back in time to solve the mystery of Mr. Hatfeild’s cake, and with a list of suspects you will have only few witnesses to question...the talking trees!

Follow the map in the trail to find the trees who hold the clues, scan the QR code to unlock hints and important information. Like every top detective use your deduction and note findings that will help you eliminate any of the six suspects from the running.

Pick up point: Garden Centre, Cafes and Information Point (when open over the weekend)

£3 per trail (Includes a trail, a pencil and the script from the talking trees)

All money raised from the trails help us look after Morden Hall Park - for everyone, for everyone.

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
