Gift Aid prices and donations
Your support really makes a difference to us. All proceeds from admission tickets and events go towards the upkeep of Waddesdon Manor.
The Gift Aid admission scheme includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. If you’re a UK taxpayer, Gift Aid admission allows us to reclaim tax on the whole of the amount paid – an extra 25 per cent. An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth up to £3 to us. If you’d like to pay our standard entry rates these are displayed below, at our property and under (prices) at: www.nationaltrust.org.uk

Where does my money go?
All ticket and donation income goes directly towards the upkeep, conservation and enhancement of the house, collections and landscape at Waddesdon, which we are committed to preserving for future generations to enjoy. We are very grateful to every visitor who helps us by purchasing an entry ticket, attending an event or donating via our Gift Aid admission scheme. Funds raised go towards a range of projects. For example, recent work includes the installation of a new disabled acesss lift in the Manor’s main entrance, conserving an important historical desk and restoring some of the artificial Pulham rockwork in the gardens.
