For your budding Victorian explorers, we are running Victorian games and outdoor activities on the croquet lawn outside the house for you to drop in and play. The games are weather dependent.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Tyntesfield's Victorian residents, the Gibbs, loved spending time in the outdoors. They modelled their gardens to fit with their tastes and reflect their travels across the world. For your budding Victorian explorers, we are running Victorian games and outdoor activities on the croquet lawn outside the house for you to drop in and play. Games include Quoits, hula-hoops, skipping, OXO, Snakes & ladders and Croquet. The games are weather dependent.

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
