Festival of Archaeology

Explore Woolsthorpe like never before, as we take part in the Festival of Archaeology this July! From the 16-18 July, we will be unearthing the history of the field next to the Manor and hosting archaeological activities.

  • Booking advisable
  • Free event (admission applies)

We are working with members of the South Witham Archaeology group to undertake a geophysical survey of the field next to the Manor. This field is thought to be the locations of Newton's mother's house!

Join us to discover what's happening and get involved with some hands-on archaeological activities for families. There’s plenty to get involved with, whether you’re playing ‘rot or not’, or reconstructing replica broken pots, everyone can be a National Trust archaeologist for the day.

For entry to the Manor House, please pre-book your tickets online to guarantee entry. Booking is not needed for the rest of the site.

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...

Free entry for National Trust members. 

To avoid disappointment, please book a guided tour of the Manor House in advance. If you do not book, we cannot guarantee admission to the Manor. You do not need to book to visit the orchard or Science Centre. 

If you have a Family or Joint Membership, please bring both your membership cards to gain admission.
