Stability and Survival

This autumn discover more about Adelaide Watt, an independent and powerful woman, ahead of her time. As the last owner of Speke Hall, her passion secured its survival.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Explore her legacy in an outdoor exhibition that shines a light on the impact she left on the estate. Stroll around the grounds to discover tales of what Adelaide was like as a landlord, her interest in ‘pig courts’ and even how she managed to reroute the plans for the Manchester Ship Canal!

Inside the hall, pay the Blue Drawing Room a visit before 4 November to see a brand new projection which shows the changing tastes in interior design over the Victorian era.

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.
