Conservation takeover weekend

During this special conservation weekend there will be lots to see, as the conservation team of staff and volunteers takes over.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

You will be able to see the important work they do, have a chat with the team about their work and get some tips and join a conservation tour.

There is a range of activities planned, suited to different interests, from book cleaning demonstrations, how we conserve the textiles to polishing and discover the damage caused by those pesky bugs.

Normal admission applies to visit and access this event.

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
