European Days of Jewish Culture and Heritage

Discover some of the lesser known stories that reflect Lord and Lady Bearsted's Jewish heritage.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

In 1927 Upton House became the country home of the 2nd Viscount Bearsted, Walter Samuel, philanthropist, noted art collector and Chairman of Shell Oil.

Through an exploration of the house and some of its objects, including archive documents, paintings and sculpture, you will discover little know stories that reflect the family's Jewish heritage.

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
