Passions & Possessions: The Material World of Antony Gibbs

We invite you to step into the material world of Antony Gibbs in our award-winning exhibition showcasing over a hundred of his personal possessions.

  • Booking advisable
  • Free event (admission applies)

As the eldest son of William Gibbs (1790-1875), Antony was heir to a vast family fortune. When his father passed the reins of the Gibbs' empire to an older cousin, though still extraordinarily rich, Antony was now a man with free time on his hands. As our special guests in the Drawing Room, we invite you to step into Antony's material world. Here you will encounter over a hundred of his personal possessions, discover the private passions of a romantic collector and a true master craftsman.

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 or
  • Standard admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you the Gift Aid Admission prices. But it's entirely up to you which ticket you choose. If you want the Standard Admission instead, just let us know when you come to pay.

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: Payment of the additional percentage donation is entirely voluntary, so if you prefer to pay the standard admission please advise our reception staff at the till point.

  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 donations must be supported by a valid Gift Aid declaration and a Gift Aid declaration can only cover donations made by an individual for him/herself or for him/herself and members of his/her family.

Please note...

Car park charge of £3 per vehicle, per day. Free for National Trust members with a valid car sticker and membership card. Free parking with designated spaces for Blue Badge holders, coaches and motorcyles.
