Half-term fun with a Welsh folklore twist

From 23 to 31 October, we'll be celebrating all things spooky with our Hwch Ddu Gwta trail.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

On 31 October or Nos Calen Gaeaf (the night before winter eve), Welsh legend warns of the Hwch Ddu Gwta, the tailless black sow, that might appear, trying to catch those who stayed out too late.

If you’re brave enough, come along and follow our spooky trail through the garden and outbuildings.

On 30 and 31 October, join Jake Evans for his unique and entertaining storytelling sessions. This time he'll be exploring scary tales of the season.

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
