Attics and Treasures Experience (12 Jan - 6 Feb 2022)

The attics are a spot very rarely seen at Hardwick and is perhaps somewhere you may never have even considered on your visit.

  • Booking essential
  • Admission applies

Home to some off-display textiles, the attics are a treasure trove for historical enthusiasts. The attics themselves have a story to tell from creation and history, which not many get to hear.

Many of the attic's textiles have links to some of the five treasures of Hardwick. Five remarkable objects which highlight Bess of Hardwick’s impeccable taste, can be seen in our ground floor display. This special tour gives you chance to see and hear more about these astonishing objects.

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.
