Turner at Petworth

Whilst other rooms of the house are closed for conservation, this winter we will explore the fascinating story of the painter J.M.W. Turner.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Turner (1775-1851) was a regular visitor to the house in the 1820s and 30s as the guest of the 3rd Earl of Egremont. The twenty Turner oil paintings collected and commissioned by the 3rd Earl from 1802 onwards are still at Petworth for visitors to enjoy which offers a rare opportunity to view a significant body of Turner’s works in the setting for which they were acquired.

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...

Please note the Pleasure Grounds are now included in the admission charge to the property. 

Main car parking charge is £4, free to NT members. Parking charge at North car park is £3, free to NT members.
