Ranger Skills Day

Spend a day learning outdoor skills with the Hare Hill Rangers

  • Booking not needed

Find out more about the work of our Rangers on a fun-filled and informative day. Have a go at rope and knot tying, learn how to throw a rope and make a swing, or make a bird feeder. There'll be a chance to see different kit, and a display of deer antlers. You can also buy a Swedish candle to take home! No need to book, just turn up any time between 10.30 and 4.

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 or
  • Standard admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you the Gift Aid Admission prices. But it's entirely up to you which ticket you choose. If you want the Standard Admission instead, just let us know when you come to pay.

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: Payment of the additional percentage donation is entirely voluntary, so if you prefer to pay the standard admission please advise our reception staff at the till point.

  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 donations must be supported by a valid Gift Aid declaration and a Gift Aid declaration can only cover donations made by an individual for him/herself or for him/herself and members of his/her family.

Please note...

If you are not visiting the garden, car parking is £8.00 per car for non-members. The car park charge is refunded on entry to the garden.
