The Harvest Season - Bounty and Preserving Flavours of Castle Ward

Join Clare on a walk around the grounds learning about the various edible plant that grow here.

  • Booking essential
  • Admission applies

Clare will lead you on a walk around the grounds of Castle Ward to discover the plants and shrubs that grow here and how they would have been used in history, and how they can be turned into something tasty.

You will be gathering up a few things on the walk and (weather permitting) finish the experience with a group cooking session.

Each session will begin with tea and a welcome snack - please make us aware of any dietary requirements.

Please note spaces are limited, price includes admission to Castle Ward. The walk takes place from 11am-2:30pm.

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
