Until December we'll be carrying out conservation work to the west front of the church. A team of expert stonemasons will be removing damaging vegetation and re-pointing areas of masonry. During this time the west front will be covered by scaffolding and inaccessible due to safety barriers. The rest of the site will be open as usual.
The Gift Aid admission price includes a voluntary donation of 10%. Provided you have paid enough UK Income or Capital Gains Tax * (to cover all of your Gift Aid donations in this tax year), English Heritage is able to reclaim tax on the whole amount you have paid - that's 25p on every £1. This extra money enables us to undertake vital conservation and education projects and ensure that many of England's most important historic sites can continue to be enjoyed by future generations.
* Other taxes such as Council Tax and VAT do not apply.
