Festival of Archaeology: Underfloor secrets display
An archaeologist working alone through lockdown in the attic rooms of Oxburgh Hall uncovered thousands of rare items under the floorboards. This is your chance to see some of them up close.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
Recent archaeological excavations, both in the hall and out in the landscape, have uncovered thousands of items and revealed more about Oxburgh's hidden past.
We're celebrating the CBA Festival of Archaeology from 16 - 24 July. Drop into the Gun Room to see some of these amazing finds up close; from high status Elizabethan textiles to an empty box of 1940s Terry’s chocolates and much, much more.

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|
