Don't Let the Bed Bugs Bite!

Night caps at the ready as you embark on a slumber adventure at the Tudor Merchant’s House.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Go on a slumber adventure at the Tudor Merchant's House as we reveal how our predecessors would have slept. From nightly rituals to the origins of sleeping tight, our townhouse will tell the story of both the merchant’s family and their servants.

Smell Tudor supper in the kitchen, gather herbs from the garden and help us create the ultimate recipe to a good night’s sleep. For 40 winks like a merchant, visit the top floor to discover tester bed luxury and a very superstitious routine.

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
