Calling all summer solstice early risers

Summer solstice early opening.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Rise and shine as we throw open our doors. Early risers can take in the view as the solstice heralds the height of summer and the longest daylight hours of the year. Early morning is a special time to be in the garden as it comes alive with the expectation of a new day as birds and insects quench their thirst on the early morning dew.

The tea room will be open from 5am selling morning pastries and hot drinks with a full menu from 11am.

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...

Admission prices now apply to all visitors to the whole site - garden, house, shop and tea room. Free entry to National Trust members and children under 5.
