Meet Father Christmas

It’s the busiest time of year for Father Christmas, but he’ll be taking a couple of weekends off to enjoy a traditional family Christmas in the castle.

  • Booking essential
  • Admission applies

Prepare to travel back in time for an old-fashioned Christmas visit. Father Christmas loves meeting our visitors, and always makes sure he has a gift for every child. Why not make a festive day of it by stretching little legs with a frosty walk, followed by winter warmers in the café?

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
