Myths and Legends of the Sea - Treasure Island of Summer Activities

Inspired by stories and life on the Mount, both past and present, join a crafty hub of activity and make your own treasure to take home.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Many boats and ships have visited these shores for centuries - some friendly, some not!

Make your own reed boat, that we are sure will be able to sail the Seven Seas...or perhaps a rockpool or two.

Mythical mermaids were also said to be spotted around the island. Use your imagination to create an underwater world using seashore treasures.

Make your own willow fish on a stick or design your own nautical flag on a natural calico fabric.

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
