Carols by Candlelight
As Christmas fast approaches it’s time for our annual carol service. This year we will be limiting the number of visitors into the cellarium so please ask a member of the welcome team for a ticket on arrival if you'd like to join the service.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
You'll be able to pick up a candle on your way in and see the flickering glow of hundreds of candles light up the abbey cellarium. Grab a mulled wine or a hot chocolate and have a sing-a-long to all your favourite traditional carols.
Limited seating will be available.

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|
