Book fair

Nothing beats getting lost in a good book in a majestic garden on a summer's day. See what literary gems you can discover in our second-hand book fair. Your donations will also help us to raise money for vital conservation work.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Looking for a great book to get stuck into this summer? Need some pool side reading for an upcoming holiday? We will be holding a second-hand book fair on the south terrace of Dyffryn House, looking out at our majestic gardens.

Our second-hand book shops have brought in much needed donations from our generous visitors and all money raised from this book fair stays at Dyffryn to maintain, restore and reinstate parts of the house and garden.

Please bring cash.

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
