Wildlife Hero Days

Are you a Nostell nature superstar ready to answer the call of the wild? Get stuck in a made your own outdoor creation to take home.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Each Tuesday will make something different from insect hotel mugs to wooden pendants (on rotation each week).

This activity is great for young heroes 5+ but all ages are welcome. Very little explorers may need a touch of extra help to channel their super powers.

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
