Active Wednesday

Run around and work up a sweat in the fresh air this autumn with a day of outdoor sporty activities.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Challenge your friends and family to a game of volleyball or get into teams for a game of cricket on the vista. We'll kit you out with all the sports equipment you need to play, so just bring yourselves and a sporting attitude and enjoy the autumn outdoors.

Or if you'd prefer a different pace, come inside and unleash your inner artist, making paper craft Christmas decorations and fabric clock badges, inspired by the house and gardens.

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 or
  • Standard admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you the Gift Aid Admission prices. But it's entirely up to you which ticket you choose. If you want the Standard Admission instead, just let us know when you come to pay.

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: Payment of the additional percentage donation is entirely voluntary, so if you prefer to pay the standard admission please advise our reception staff at the till point.

  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 donations must be supported by a valid Gift Aid declaration and a Gift Aid declaration can only cover donations made by an individual for him/herself or for him/herself and members of his/her family.

Please note...

Access to Parkland is free. There is a £4 car parking charge (free for National Trust members).
