Autumn Pranking Pumpkins trail

Enjoy a wander through the autumnal colours at Killerton while looking out for pumpkin faces, fun facts and jokes.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Twelve fun-loving pumpkins are hidden around the park and garden. Each one has left a joke for you to find. Explore the main paths and see if you can spot them. To take part simply scan the QR code at the trail start point and follow the arrows. Don’t worry if you don’t have a smart phone; paper copies are available at Visitor Reception. There are 12 pumpkin faces to find, so good luck spotting them all.

Don’t forget to download your certificate at the end. The trail is free and runs daily from 18 until 31 October (normal admission applies).

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

 

*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.

Please note...

We're open every day, and you don't need to book your visit in advance. If you would like to visit when its quieter, we recommend you arrive after 2.30pm.

We are operating a pay and display in our car park where car park charges will apply for non-members.
