Tree climbing with the Big Tree Climbing Company
Come and climb a tree higher than you ever have done before and tick off number 1 on our 50 Things to do list.
- Booking essential
- Admission applies
Join our tree climbing experts from the Big Tree Climbing Company who will guide you up Erddig's trees using ropes and harnesses.
Once you're kitted out, you'll get an opportunity to see our 1,200 acre estate from a different perspective.
Booking is essential as places are limited, so book your tickets early to avoid disappointment. Children must be aged 6 and above and be accompanied by a grown-up!
Non National Trust members will also need to pay admission fees on the day.
- Aged 6 and above £18.50
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 or
- Standard admission
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you the Gift Aid Admission prices. But it's entirely up to you which ticket you choose. If you want the Standard Admission instead, just let us know when you come to pay.
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: Payment of the additional percentage donation is entirely voluntary, so if you prefer to pay the standard admission please advise our reception staff at the till point.
|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 donations must be supported by a valid Gift Aid declaration and a Gift Aid declaration can only cover donations made by an individual for him/herself or for him/herself and members of his/her family.
Please check house opening information as times vary. From 24 March our garden, outbuildings, restaurant and shop are open daily from 10am to 5pm until 27 October when we open 11am to 4pm.
