The Gruffalo and Friends: the Art of Axel Scheffler family trail
Explore our grounds with a fun family trail accompanying our Gruffalo and Friends exhibition.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
Spot signs of the Gruffalo and find his den in the cellarium and challenge yourself in the Stick Man climbing area. There's even a giant broom with room for photo opportunities...
There are physical, creative and puzzle activities to try along the way, with a craft activity to take home. Our trail suits both younger and older children, so it's fun for all the family - even grown-ups can join in! Suggested donation £1 per trail.

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 or
- Standard admission
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you the Gift Aid Admission prices. But it's entirely up to you which ticket you choose. If you want the Standard Admission instead, just let us know when you come to pay.
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: Payment of the additional percentage donation is entirely voluntary, so if you prefer to pay the standard admission please advise our reception staff at the till point.
|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 donations must be supported by a valid Gift Aid declaration and a Gift Aid declaration can only cover donations made by an individual for him/herself or for him/herself and members of his/her family.
Free entry for National Trust members, Art Fund members and under 5s.
