Discovering Telescopes Trail
Take a peek into the history of the telescope this Easter.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
Take a peek into the history of the telescope and understand how we see into space. Follow our telescope-themed trail around the whole site to find out more.
From their early beginnings in Netherlands to Newton's game changing reflector, telescopes opened up the skies for astronomers.
You can finish off your research with a visit to the Soyuz capsule Lego model!
Free activity but normal admission applies.
Please note that access to the Manor is via timed entry only.

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.
Entry to Woolsthorpe Manor is free for National Trust members. If you have a Family or Joint Membership, please bring both your membership cards to gain admission.
