Family red squirrel walks

If you're curious about the now rare red squirrels then join one of these fun free family guided walks and find out all about them. Autumn is a great time to spot them as they scurry across the forest floor in search of a tasty bite.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Did you know that red squirrels need to eat up to 100 pine cones in one day to get the nutrition that they need or that their babies are called kittens? These walks will tell you so much more about the UK's native squirrel and if you're lucky, you might catch sight of some too.

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...

Please note that the ferry fare (not National Trust) applies to all visitors.

DWT members who are solely visiting the DWT area, are not required to pay the NT admission
