Experience Newark House as it might have been in the Edwardian era. Meet busy butlers and maids, watch them about their work and you might even join the family of the house for their afternoon tea!
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
Get into the spirit of Newark Park's bygone era as we bring Newark's Edwardian past to life. The house will be busy with maids making beds, footmen cleaning boots, cooks preparing for high tea and the family of the house enjoying their historic country home. There will be traditional outdoor games on the lawn too. So, join in the games and the conversations to learn how people lived at Newark Park 100 years ago- a lovely day out for the whole family.

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.
