Falling in love with the Georgians - Architectural tours

Join a volunteer led tour to find out all about Berrington's architectural masterpiece designed by Henry Holland - the Staircase Hall Dome. Find out how your support is enabling us to undertake repairs to restore this over 200 year old structure.

  • Booking advisable
  • Admission applies

For many years the Dome has leaked due to its curved design but straight glass. We're using specialist techniques to restore this intricate construction, maintaining its beauty and integrity yet also keeping the weather out.

Our volunteers will show you this and other clever elements of Georgian architectural design at Berrington.

Discover our contemporary pavilion in the walled garden, get outdoors into 'Capability' Brown's final landscape and spot the spring flowers around the gardens.

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.

  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 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.
