Draw Hill Top

Draw what you see before you in the garden of Hill Top, just like Beatrix Potter did in her little white books.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

In Hill Top's garden, there is an easel set up so that you can pick up a pencil and be inspired by your surroundings, just as Beatrix was. As she drew from life, many scenes in her books are recognisably of Hill Top. Anybody, of all ages, can have a go.

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
