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

 

*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.

Please note...

- Car parking charges apply- £1 an hour up to £4 for a full day. Cahrges apply in both the main car park and in the parkland car park. National Trust members park for free.

- Ticket prices include access to both the house and gardens- there is no seperate ticket solely for the gardens.

- Tickets can either be purchased both in reception or at the entrance to the house and formal & woodland garden.

- Access to the cafe, shop and plant centre is free. If you are a member, please show your card in reception as it allows us to scan it and claim up to £2.55 in member credit from our head office to support the vital conservation work we do at Knightshayes.
