Dyrham's beautiful bats half term trail

This October half term there will be a trail around the parkland on the theme of bats. Young detectives will be able to pick up a sheet from outside Visitor Reception and search for clues to match different types of bats with their roosts.

  • Booking not needed
  • Admission applies

The trail costs £2 and it will run from Thursday 21 to Sunday 31 October. Card payment is preferred.

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

Please note...

Please note there is a parking charge for non-members of £4 per day or £2 for two hours.

The basics

Suitability
The trail is aimed at children.
Meeting point
You can buy the trails on arrival at Dyrham Park at Visitor Reception.
What to bring and wear
Please dress for the great outdoors with sturdy footwear as the terrain is sloping, steep and uneven in part.
Accessibility
There are slopes and it would be diificult to do the trail with a pushchair if ground conditions are wet/muddy. Most of the clues are along slops so not accessible to wheelchairs.
Other
Dogs are not allowed in the parkland, other than assistance dogs.
