Nature detective spotter sheet
Get ready to be a nature detective with a free spotter sheet...
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
During the summer holidays (23 July to 4 September), pick up a free spotter sheet from any welcome point on site. Head off with your sheet and explore the estate, learning more about nature and trying out different nature-based activities. What will you discover?
Take as long or as little as you like - this trail is suitable for those with little legs or those who are a bit older too! There's no set route, so you can take this spotter sheet anywhere on the estate.

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:
|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|
