Father Christmas visits Knightshayes

No child is truly ready for Christmas until they have met with the jolly man in green.

  • Booking essential
  • Admission applies

Father Christmas will be visiting Knightshayes in the run up to the big day, and will be handing keepsakes in his workshop in the East Wing to the very best behaved boys and girls. Learn all about Christmas traditions and tell us about yours, and don't forget to write a letter to the North Pole.

Note: This event is in the East Wing of the house, so admission prices apply for non-members on top of the price of the event (payable on the day). Admission is free for members.

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 for the main visitor car park apply- £1 an hour up to £4 for a full day. National Trust members park for free.
