Bugs Bonanza

We're having a bug bonanza at Erddig!

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Our house team is always on the hunt for bugs that could damage our collection. With 10 to find, join the trail to see if you can spot our big bugs hiding in the rooms of the house.

The outdoor trail features both welcome and unwelcome garden guests with 10 in total to find. Look out for our information panels to find out more about the good, bad and the ugly. See if you can spot our two new insects including a hummingbird hawk moth and a sabre wasp.

From 4 May - 30 June.

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.

Please note...

Please check house opening information as times vary. From 24 March our garden, outbuildings, restaurant and shop are open daily from 10am to 5pm until 27 October when we open 11am to 4pm.
