Silent Space at Glendurgan

Enjoy the tranquility of the Olive Grove and School Room in our Silent Space in the garden. Explore the opportunities to reflect without interruptions of daily life!

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Silent Space is an initiative building on the success of a pilot study last year. The aim is to create spaces where people can relax, switch off from the hectic world we live in, not be disturbed by the human voice and engage with nature.

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
