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 or
  • Standard admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you the Gift Aid Admission prices. But it's entirely up to you which ticket you choose. If you want the Standard Admission instead, just let us know when you come to pay.

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: Payment of the additional percentage donation is entirely voluntary, so if you prefer to pay the standard admission please advise our reception staff at the till point.

  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 donations must be supported by a valid Gift Aid declaration and a Gift Aid declaration can only cover donations made by an individual for him/herself or for him/herself and members of his/her family.

Please note...

Please note: we offer reduced off-peak pricing from 28 January to 24 February and November weekends when the State Rooms are not fully open due to conservation work.

The basics

Children are very welcome!
Assistance dogs are welcome.
Meeting point
Please enter through the Ticket Office and then follow the signs to collect your trail leaflet. Trails start at the entrance to the gardens next to the castle.
What to bring and wear
The Trail takes place outside in the gardens so please wear suitable clothing and footwear. Depending on the weather some of the paths may be muddy.
The gardens have good accessibility, however there are some uneven paths and mile gradients throughout. If you are unsure please contact us for a copy of our Access Statement.
Normal admission applies (National Trust members are free), and trails are £2.50 each with the reward of a Cadbury chocolate prize at the end.
