Gribbin Daymark open days - 20 years

The Gribbin Daymark will be open to the public for the 20th year 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.

In 1998 a determined group of locals teamed up with the ranger team to open the daymark to the public each Sunday in the summer months. We’d like to say a big thanks to all our team, some of whom have been with us for all the 20 years, rain and shine.

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
