Meet the Elizabethans!
Try on some costumes, learn to write with a quill pen, create your own merchant mark and get creative with our self-guided craft activities.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
Join us to Meet the Elizabethans as part of our double event day at Tolhouse Gaol and Elizabethan House Museum! Meet Pirates, Prisoners, historical and mystical characters at one site and visit the other to get hands on with our different themed craft activities each week.
Discount is available for visitors attending both events on same day (National Trust members get free entry at Elizabethan House with membership card – you only need to pay admission at Tolhouse Museum).

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:
|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|
