Hallowe'en trail

We know that creepy crawlies can be a little scary, but this Hallowe'en we'd like to let you into a little secret.... they're super important for the planet.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Gibside is made up of dark woodlands and plenty of hiding places for amazing creatures like spiders, bats, mice and frogs to live. This year's trail will take you on a journey to their favourite spots so you can see just how clever they really are and why they're essential in the world.

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...

Free entry to Market Place, café / pub and shop: Only on Gibside Market days (every first and third Saturday of each month) and for Gibside Pub (open every Friday and Saturday until 9pm).
