Wimpole Wednesday Walks
Our popular guided walks are back! Enjoy the estate from a different perspective and discover the best bits of the parkland and countryside by joining our volunteer guides on a Wednesday Walk.

Each week takes in a different route, varying in distance and taking in different highlights around the estate. Our Wednesday Walks are usually between 3 - 5 miles, and take between 2 and 3 hours depending on walking speed. A suggested donation of £2, paid at our Visitor Welcome will be greatly appreciated.

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|
