Gift Aid makes a huge difference to us and helps to conserve and grow. A small donation with your entrance ticket can go a long way.

Gift Aid allows UK charities to claim back the basic rate already paid on donations by the donor.  For every £1 you spend on admission, we can claim back 25p from the Government on your behalf.

* Family ticket = 2 adults and up to 3 children.

** For Disabled Visitor tickets call our Welcome Team to book.

School visits are priced separately.
