Boxing Day Walk

Get out and about this Boxing Day and enjoy a bracing walk around the Bateman's estate followed by a hot drink in our tea room.

  • Booking essential
  • Admission applies

Join our Ranger this Boxing Day and take a gentle 2 mile countryside walk out on the Bateman's estate. You'll need your Wellies or some good walking boots as it will probably be muddy and there's one stile to negotiate. When you get back to the start, there'll be a hot drink waiting for you in the tea room, and you can always treat yourself to a delicious bacon or sausage bap.

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
