Georgian Costume Days

Come along and see how the Georgian inhabitants of Osterley would have dressed, be it servant, Lord or Lady.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Go back in time at Osterley House as you are welcomed by volunteers dressed as Georgian Lords, Ladies, and servants. Beautifully made by our costume volunteers these outfits replicate the clothing that would have been worn by the inhabitants of Osterley in the 18th century, be it servant or noble.

Costumed volunteers will be moving through the house during the day, so drop by and discover the fashions of life in Georgian times.

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
