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...

Free entry for National Trust members, Art Fund members and under 5s.

Peak prices apply for June (rose season), and bank holidays (Easter Friday/Monday, August, and May).

Off-peak prices apply every day from 3pm (including the evening openings during rose season), and when there are limits to our offer (for example, when the house or gallery are closed). 

The basics

Suitability
Dogs on leads are welcome.
Meeting point
Pick up a trail sheet at Visitor Reception.
What to bring and wear
Dress for the weather - the trail will take place outside.
Accessibility
There are gently-sloping areas and wide pathways around much of the grounds. Pathways are uneven in some places so sturdy footwear/pushchair tyres are recommended.
