Stowe is supporting the Big Garden Birdwatch from 28th-30th January. Stowe has one of the most significant gardens in the country, so what better way to come and spot birds than here? Whether you see sparrows or siskins, blackbirds or barn owls, your findings will be crucial to make sure bird species are cared for. We have hundreds of benches spread across the gardens so you can come to your favourite spot and see which feathered friends come and join you. You will be able to collect a free activity sheet from the porch at New Inn on these days.

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

Please note...

RHS members visit for free, one person free entry per membership.
