Half Term adventures at Gibside
Are you ready for an adventure filled half term? Free activities every day of the school holidays.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
As the days get warmer and evenings become longer, May half-term is the perfect time to head outdoors and have an adventure. Every day we have a different free activity to try: make an edible window box, toast marshmallows on a campfire, join us on a plant safari, chill out with a game of badminton and lots more! There are loads of opportunities for younger visitors to tick off some of their 50 things to do before you're 11 3/4 plus plenty of space to run around and let off steam.

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).
