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|

National Trust members have free admission. A child ticket is for ages 5 to 17. Under 5's are free. A family ticket is for two adults and up to three children. Access to the estate is free, but admission is required to access the castle or gardens. Group visits should be booked in advance. There is no charge for car parking.
- Meeting point
- The decorations are inside the castle rooms, open 11am to 4pm (last entry 3:30pm). The entrance is from the castle courtyard, but please get your ticket first at Visitor Reception by the car park.
- What to bring and wear
- It can be cool inside, please dress for the weather.
- Unfortunately the castle interior is not wheelchair accessible due to the number of stairs along the visitor route.
