Wild play trail at Basildon Park
This summer holidays we’re launching something brand new at Basildon Park. The Wild Play Trail takes in some of the best views of the parkland, while engaging the little ones with the nature that surrounds them.
- Booking not needed
- Admission applies
The Wild Play Trail is set in the beautiful woodland here at Basildon Park, and features 20 different play stations including a wooden xylophone, a sensory room, log bridges and so much more. Trail leaflets cost £2 throughout the summer holidays.
The Wild Play Trail is suitable for children of all ages, even those with the little legs. For the little ones who may find the full route a little too far, there’s a half-way point at which you can head back to the house for some refreshments.

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|
