A Penrhyn Christmas

Get away from it all this holiday season and leave the high street far behind as we invite you to join us for Christmas weekends at the Castle.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Join us during weekends in the run up to Christmas for traditional wreath making workshops (£6 per wreath) Christmas print making activities and festive food demonstrations in the Victorian Kitchen. We're hoping a certain jolly gentleman with a white beard may pop in to say hello too...

(Garden admission prices only - please be advised that not all areas of the Castle will be open)

Please see separate event for Wreath Making booking details

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...

Reduced garden entry price valid weekdays only during November and December 2018
