Where to shop

Our shop can be found in the Welcome Centre, conveniently close to the car park. It's a beautiful space to browse and escape the stress of the high street. Discover exclusive, seasonal National Trust ranges, as well as products related to our events and exhibitions.

We also stock firewood, kindling and other produce sustainably sourced from our ancient woodlands: grown, felled, seasoned and processed on site by our countryside team. All sales contribute towards our ongoing conservation efforts across the estate.
