Conservation in action at Newark Park

Learn how the conservation team look after the objects at Newark Park

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

On the top floor of Newark house you can learn about how the conservation team looks after the objects at Newark Park.

The Swan Bedroom is a hub for the conservation team, and is where they carry out some of their cleaning tasks.

Here you will find a variety of tools and objects that the team use every day to look after the collection.

All of these tools can be picked up and handled.

Keep an eye out during your visit for the conservation team cleaning and taking care of items around the house.

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...

Free entry for National Trust members.
We are operating a pay and display in our car park where car park charges will apply for non-members (cash only).
