Guided Walk: Tree Stories

Imagine if trees could talk. What might they say? Let's look at trees in a different way to discover more about what it's like to be a tree, how they thrive at Newtown and how our trees provide life to so many other things.

  • Booking essential
  • Admission applies

On our gentle guided walk that’s perfect for young explorers, we’ll discover the tree of life, the family tree of a tree and so much more on this exciting adventure through Newtown's meadows, with the help of some really old trees.

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.

Please note...

Entry to the nature reserve is free. National Trust members can visit the town hall for free.
