First World War Beacon of Light on Reigate Hill

In commemoration and remembrance of the end of the First World War and the many millions who were killed or came home dreadfully wounded, 1000 beacons will be lit throughout the United Kingdom- a century after the guns fell silent.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

The event will also commemorate the huge army of men and women who underpinned the war effort- keeping the wheels of industry turning and bringing the harvests home.

The beacon will be lit at 7pm.

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
