Scented summer evenings

Take an early evening stroll around the tranquil riverside garden that gave Wordsworth a lifetime’s poetic inspiration.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Wander ‘lonely as a cloud’ with a glass of prosecco or Pimms, relax amid the heady scent of roses and bright summer blooms, then step inside to meet the maid-of-all-work and discover how the other half lived.

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
