'A Northumbrian November' at the house
Throughout the month of November on the ground floor of the house, we'll be drawing the curtains, dimming the lights, and lighting the fires, recreating the feeling of comfortable autumnal evenings wrapped up in the luxury of Cragside.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
Experience the power of electricity to brighten dull autumn evenings, and how modern features like hot water and central heating made the cold Northumbrian winters bearable for the Armstrong’s and their guests. You'll find seasonal floral displays, cosy firelit rooms, and autumn harvest fruits in the kitchen. Visit the Japanese room to see beautiful gifts from the Japanese Emperor to Lord Armstrong, which are not usually on display.

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|
