Dog Walking Social Group

The Dog Walking Social Group is a great opportunity for you and your four legged companion to make new friends! The group meets twice a month.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Taking a different route each month, it's a wonderful chance to explore different areas of the park and find out more about the work going on throughout the estate.

Meet outside Information Centre. The walk lasts approx. 1 ½ - 2 hours but there will be drop-out points along the way for older or younger dogs who may not be able to manage the full distance.

Vehicle admission charges apply. NT members free.

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.
