The pumpkin pretenders
Visit this half term school holidays (23 – 31 October, 10am - 5pm) for a brand-new autumn challenge.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
Search high and low to see how many pumpkins you can spot around the gardens. Remember to keep your eyes peeled for the small and green ones that are especially hard to find. However, watch out for the pumpkin pretenders that are hiding in plain sight and aren’t pumpkins at all!
Along the way uncover interesting facts and figures, and some ideas to make the most of your autumn veg and Halloween pumpkins when you've finished all your spooky shenanigans.

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:
|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|
