Autumn colour garden walks

Join us this Autumn for a guided walk around the garden to look at some of Scotney's best colour. Monday 11 October - Friday 19 November (Monday-Friday only) at 11am & 2pm.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

When autumn arrives, the garden at Scotney Castle bursts into colour. The shades and textures of oranges, yellows and reds create a bright picture across the landscape. Learn more about seasonal highlights on this guided walk with our garden team.

The garden at Scotney Castle is part of a designed landscape, put together and shaped to form the perfect picture. At the heart of it all sits the romantic folly of Scotney Castle. During autumn it is surrounded by vibrant reds and oranges. Whether you view it from the Bastion view point or up close from across the moat, autumn is the perfect time to just admire the view.

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.
