Give Orienteering a Go
We've teamed up with the South Yorkshire Orienteers so you can give orienteering a go within the stunning surrounds of Wentworth Castle Gardens.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
Orienteering is a great way to get out and explore the outdoors. It does not matter how young, old or fit you are as you can choose the course that's right for you and run, jog or walk it at your own pace. The aim is to navigate between control points marked on an orienteering map and decide the best route to complete the course in the quickest time. No experience of orienteering is necessary as someone will be on hand to explain what to do.
There are 2 courses to have a go at. You can do both if you enjoy it and have time!
Easy - 750m, 8 controls
Medium - 1.5km, 16 controls
Distances seem short but you will go further as this is the direct line distance between the controls!

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|

Free entry for National Trust members.
We now accept the Max Card, giving 25% off for foster families and families of children with additional needs.
We accept the Essential Companion card, which makes it simple to bring one or two carers or companions with you, free of charge. Just show the card when you arrive, and your carer(s) or companion(s) won’t need to pay an entry fee.
It’s in your name so you can bring whomever you like, but even if you don’t have an Essential Companion card, you can still bring carers or companions free – the card just makes it quicker and simpler for you.
If you’re not a National Trust member, you will still need to pay for your own entry.
