Seasonal Silhouettes in the garden

Embrace the outdoors this Christmas and enjoy the peace and tranquility it offers at this busy time of year. Look out for our seasonal silhouettes around the garden as you go and join in the festivities.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

This Christmas, we invite you to spend some time in the garden, taking in the views and spotting the seasonal silhouettes around the garden interacting with the landscape.

If you're visiting with children or grandchildren, pick up one of our Spot the Robin Christmas trail sheets to keep youngsters occupied on the way round too. We're challenging them to look out for the robins hiding in each of our festive silhouette scenes as you enjoy a walk.

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
