Beautiful blooms at Avebury

The garden team at Avebury work year round, planting and caring for plants which now burst into bloom after the winter months. Soak up these beautiful spring blooms as you explore the Avebury Manor Garden.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

A special gardener's handout will direct you around the garden and introduce you to the five 'must see' blooms in May. Depending on the weather some of these may begin to flower earlier than others! We will also be inviting local florists and growers to exhibit their own floral creations throughout the month. Look out for these beautiful displays every time you visit.

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.

Please note...

Admission is free to the stone circles. English Heritage members have free entry to the museum.

Children under five year are free of charge.

Family ticket is for either 1 or 2 adults plus 1 child with 2nd and 3rd child free.
