Haunted Ashridge trail and craft

Things are getting spooky at Ashridge. Meet some of the ghosts of people who've lived here in years gone by on our trail before making your own Halloween craft to take home.

  • Booking not needed
  • Admission applies

Follow our trail through the woods meeting some former Ashridge residents along the way. You'll be able to visit our old Shooting Lodge for a special surprise before returning to the visitor centre for a Halloween craft.

Come to the visitor centre reception anytime from 10am-4pm to start the fun.

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
