Every Monday afternoon, take a moment to switch off and take in the surroundings in our dedicated Silent Space at Polesden Lacey.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
We've reserved a space in the Upper Sunken Garden for silent visiting. Once inside the Silent Space, we stop talking, turn off our phones and cameras, and switch off from social media. A wildflower meadow in the spring and summer, the space is filled with wildflowers, butterflies, and bees. In the Autumn, it explodes into a firework of autumn colours, and in winter it turns into a frosty dream. Sit down on one of the benches tucked away in the shrubbery and enjoy a good book, or just take a moment to relax and enjoy nature. As little as five minutes will help us to enjoy the restorative benefits of being peaceful in a green place.

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:
|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|
