  • Booking advisable
  • Admission applies

Begin 2022 with sparkle and bright lights, as we extend our Winter Light programme into the new year for you to enjoy, 6-23 Jan 2022.

Throughout January, see the gardens awash with colour and dazzling light displays. As twilight falls, follow the Winter Light trail and see the Pleasure Grounds transformed with dramatic colour and playful installations with our light art trail. Stroll under the stars beneath illuminated tree canopies, look out for the interactive bubble tubes and walk through a tunnel of light loops.

See the spectacle of the Manor’s façade illuminated with dancing lights set to music. Encounter Illuminated River, a display of light works by artist, Leo Villareal who has been lighting up London’s bridges in a project supported by the Rothschild Foundation.

Make your visit even more special with a Winter afternoon tea or dinner at our historic Manor Restaurant created by our chefs.

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
