The Lost Tapestries
On this family trail, help recover and fit together jigsaw pieces of oriental tapestries hidden in nooks and crannies across the grounds. Pick up your trail sheet at visitor reception.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
Young explorers will love this quest through ancient grounds in search of little boxes containing jigsaw pieces. Find all the boxes, retrieve all the pieces and assemble your jigsaw to reveal a scene from one of The Vyne's 18th-century tapestries undergoing conservation.
Suggested donation £1 per trail sheet. All proceeds from this trail go towards the conservation of The Vyne's tapestries.

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.
You'll find important messages about things that will affect your visit in a red box at the top of our homepage. If there's no red box, then there's nothing to report. It's always best to check this before you set off.
