This Christmas our younger visitors can join a storytelling session in our woodland grotto. After a walk through the wintery garden, settle down in the grotto and enjoy a Christmas story, and after meet Santa and receive a small present and a cup of hot chocolate. Four sessions per day, 9-10am, 10-11am, 11.30-12.30pm and 12.30-1.30pm. Click on 'check availability' to book your tickets today. This ticket is not valid for entry to the property, so all attending will need to purchase a standard entry ticket on the day, unless you are a National Trust member. Only children visiting Santa need an event ticket.

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...

Last entry to the garden and house is half an hour before the stated closing times.
