Dunstall Castle Open day

Visit Dunstall Castle which was built in the 1760, designed by Robert Adam for the 6th Earl of Coventry.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Once you’ve climbed the ladder and the steep spiral staircase, you’ll enjoy views of the countryside from the top of the tower.

As only 5 people can go up the tower at one time there may be a short wait.

Further information available on arrival at Croome from Visitor Reception.

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
