Servant's Lives Tours

From 1 - 30 November, join one of our guided tours of the domestic ground floor areas in the South East Quarter of the house during November.

  • Booking not needed
  • Admission applies

From 1-30 November, in an area not usually open to the public, groups of eight will uncover some of the stories of the servants who lived and worked here in the house and garden.

This is an exclusive opportunity to access to the house when it's closed for conservation.

1 - 30 November

Tours last 30-40mins and are available between 11am and 2pm daily.

Tickets are available from visitor reception upon arrival.

Please meet outside the shop 5 mins before your allotted time.

£5 per person. Normal admission applies.

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

 

*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.

Free entry for National Trust members. Children under 5 go free.
