Jubilee celebrations for May half term

There will be activities running at Dyrham Park to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee from Sat 28 May to Sun 5 June.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

You can try a kings and queens trail with lots of facts on the various monarchs who reigned when William Blathwayt, who created the Dyrham Park we know today, was working in government. You'll be able to use your face to appear as King William or Queen Mary in peep-through boards. There will be a selection of traditional fairground and garden games, bunting galore, local music and a jubilee memories station. Each day there will be different nature activities for children, such as seed-planting, decorating nature crowns and nature trails. There will be a plant sale on selected days and the chance to picnic among nature in the orchard.

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
