Daily Garden Adventures at Wentworth Castle Gardens

Step into autumn with a variety of daily self-led activities for all the family at Wentworth Castle Gardens.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

This autumn take some time out in our gardens to enjoy the changing seasons with us.

Why not pick up a wooden sword and use your imagination to have an adventure at Stainborough Castle?

Or perhaps collect a '50 Things ' challenge sheet from the Visitor Welcome team and see how many activities you can tick off.

Also, from October 19 you can follow a new orienteering trail in the gardens to discover the different trees which are changing colour this time of year.

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

Please note...

Free entry for National Trust members.
