4th July American Independence Day flag raising ceremony

It's here at Washington Old Hall where the 'Washington' family (and the first president of the United States) took their surname, and we're proud to celebrate this special day with our American friends.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

This estate incorporates parts of the original medieval home of George Washington's direct ancestors, so it's fitting that we celebrate the 4th July too. Come along to the annual flag raising ceremony (be here at 11am to see it) and enjoy presentations about Liberty from local schools and live music on the top garden.

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
