Noah's Lost Animals Trail at Scotney Castle

This summer, escape the heat and visit the house to take part in the Noah's Lost Animals trail. Help spot the animals who've escaped and are hiding in some of the rooms upstairs and down.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

The Hussey children enjoyed playing with the wooden Noah's Ark that's on display in the Green Bedroom in the house. This summer, escape the heat and visit the house to take part in the Noah's Lost Animals trail.

Help spot the animals who've escaped and are hiding in some of the rooms upstairs and down. They'll be moving around during the holidays so if you visit more than once, they may not be in the same place!

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

 

*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.

Please note...

A child ticket is valid for anyone aged 5-17 years old. Under 5's are free.

A family ticket is valid for 2 adults and up to 3 children aged 5-17 years old.
