Illuminated woodland walk

As the sun fades see the woodland walk lit up, and enjoy the changing colours of the trees through the seasons from autumn to winter.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

As Autumn sets in at Basildon Park, the woodland really comes to life. The stunning display of Autumn colour on the trees is being further enhanced by an illuminated woodland display, which will last until January this year so you can enjoy the illuminated woodland walk throughout the winter as well.

We've added hundreds more lights this year, so it's set to be extra special this year.

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

 

*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.

Please note...

Entry for National Trust members: free.
