"Shinrin-Yoku"" or forest bathing is the practice of spending time in the forest for better health, happiness and a sense of calm. It is usually a slow and sensory walk through the forest and has been a preventative medicine since the 1980's when the Japanese Forest Agency suggested the practice as a way to reconnect with nature using mindfulness, meditation, breathing and walking exercises.

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

Car Parking: cars £8, minibuses £10, coaches £25, please pay at kiosk or pay and display machine.
