This December the elves asked if they could assist the ranger team, which sounded like a great help. Unfortunately, we're not quite sure it went to plan...
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
Pick up a Christmas chaos trail from visitor reception and as you make your way around the route, be on the lookout for things that don't look quite right. You see, although the elves - Merry, Elm, Twinkle, Peppermint, Berry and Otis - were extremely helpful they have made a few mistakes. Can you see where they've misunderstood? Write the answer on the trail sheet and please post it to us next to the shop so that we can see what needs correcting.

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 to Market Place, café / pub and shop: Only on Gibside Market days (every first and third Saturday of each month) and for Gibside Pub (open every Friday and Saturday until 9pm).
