Alexander Keiller’s Avebury Manor: pop-up exhibition

Discover how Avebury Manor looked during the years it was owned by the excavator of Avebury stone circles, Alexander Keiller.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

The Manor was a key part of Alexander Keller’s archaeological work at Avebury, but this exhibition also illustrates his passion for historic interiors. Extracts from letters and diaries, and beautiful black and white photographs of the rooms, give a glimpse of the Manor as it was seen by Alexander Keiller and his friends.

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

 

*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.
