Deer feeding at 3pm

** This year the deer will be feed at 3pm** See the Attingham fallow deer herd up close as we feed them their winter rations.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

The eighth Lord Berwick loved his fallow deer herd so much he would often feed them himself - watch us continue this tradition over the winter months.

We'll be feeding the deer to help them through the winter every weekend and daily in the Shropshire school holidays (excluding Christmas Day) at 3pm in the deer park.

During December weekends and Shropshire Christmas School holidays before the 24th Father Christmas will also be feeding the deer and looking them over to find the best ones to help him pull his sleigh.

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
