Teddy bear spotting in the Orchard
If you go down to the Orchard today, you’re sure of a big surprise... lots of little teddy bears are having a picnic party in the Orchard, how many can you spot?
- Booking not needed
- Admission applies
The Orchard is bigger than you think with over a 150 trees and lots of varieties of apples and other fruit trees.
Say hello to the different trees and have a look at the apples that are growing while hunting for the teddy bears. The bears are hiding in all sorts of places so look high and low and see how many you can spot.
Each bear is named after a type of apple tree in the Attingham Orchard. Can you find the trees each one is named after? Some bears are named after more than one tree or only share half a name with a tree so it may take some hunting.
Please leave all the bears where you find them to enjoy their picnic party.
Please also leave the apples on the trees. The gardeners know when they are ripe to pick and lots of them are not ready yet.
Help support Attingham by visiting Visitor Reception and choosing your own bear to go home with you. Available to buy for £5 while stocks last.
The bears are on display between the 4th and 26th September.
- per bear - while stocks last. £5.00

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:
|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.
Admission to Attingham is free for National Trust members and under 5s. Non-members pay admission fee on day of visit.
