A lavish family home built to resemble an Italian Palace. Kingston Lacy presents EXILE a bold new installation exploring the life and exile of William John Bankes as part of the Prejudice and Pride programme. Book your timed ticket for the house.

  • Booking essential
  • Free event (admission applies)

In addition to the house's lavish interiors, acclaimed art collection and Egyptian artefacts, Kingston Lacy presents EXILE, a bold new installation.

EXILE will not only explore William John Bankes' exile and its significance for understanding the house and collection that we see today but also consider his extraordinary story within a broader context and its relationship to the ongoing challenges faced by the LGBTQ community.

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.
