Gribbin Daymark open days

The Gribbin Daymark will be open to the public giving spectacular views of St Austell Bay to the west and the Fowey estuary to the east.

  • Booking not needed
  • Admission applies

Walk out to the Gribbin Headland and climb the tower to take in the 360⁰ views. Take a picnic or stop off at Polridmouth Beach perhaps.

12 people can fit up the tower at once, so you might have to wait a little while.

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...

National Trust members and Blue Badge holders park for free. Members please scan for a ticket.

Parking charges 2021:

  • £2.00 up to 1hr
  • £4.00 up to 4hrs
  • £8.00 all day

The pay and display machines only accept cash (no notes) and exact change is needed.

You can also pay using PayByPhone. We suggest downloading the App before you visit as mobile reception can be patchy here.

The basics

Suitability

Meeting point

Wear suitable clothing for the weather at the time, rain or shine. If it is really foggy we might be closed - sorry.
