Let's Play at Quarry Bank

Ready for an adventure? Then head for the special summer pavilions of play. Available until the end of the summer holidays, you can use the look-out point to survey your surroundings, listen out for nearby wildlife, or invent your own way to play.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

A large-scale play installation is coming to the Mill Meadow. And we are inviting families to 'Look out! Listen up!' to the sights and sounds of their natural environment. What might you see through the periscopes? What might you hear through the ear horn?

This play pavilion is free to both members and none members. Pre-booking is not required.

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.

Please note...

Free entry for National Trust members.

Admission prices include access to the Mill, Apprentice House, Quarry Bank House, upper and lower gardens, including the cafe, unless otherwise stated.
