Halloween: The pumpkin trail
When you start to see pumpkins, you know it's time to start thinking about celebrating Halloween. Here, we've got the pumpkin trail running across the two weeks of the school holidays.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
Have you heard of the haunted huts hidden in the woods? Legend says an evil wizard put them here to scare the girls and boys who were there to play. We need your help to break the spell and banish the haunted huts away. Pick up a free trail sheet from visitor reception and head into the west wood on the pumpkin trail. Can you find the haunted huts and break the spell?

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|
