Behind the scenes of our Grand Cascade, the Poison Garden, the Cherry Orchard, and our many other wonderful experiences, there is a hard-working charity that seeks to support those in our community who need it most.

By adding a small donation on top of the price of your entrance, our charity can access additional funding through Gift Aid; a tax relief which allows UK charities to reclaim an extra 25% in tax on every eligible donation made by a UK taxpayer.

It works like this:

  • You pay 10% above your entry price.*
  • You receive a gift voucher for our Forgotten Garden Adventure Golf worth 15% of your entry price to redeem any time you like.**
  • We receive 25% of your total ticket price from the Government to maintain The Alnwick Garden.

You must be a UK taxpayer to Gift Aid, as the Government give us an extra 25% on top of your donation, in lieu of the tax you have paid. It’s a rare opportunity for you to decide how your tax money is spent, and you can be sure that all the money received will go directly to The Alnwick Garden and its community charity.

Please add Gift Aid to your ticket to help our charitable programmes 

*The Alnwick Garden Trust is a registered charity, charity no 1095435.
**Only one voucher can be used per person, per round of golf.
