Further Pricing Details:

Prices are valid from 25th March 2016, if you are visiting before this date you may find prices are less than those advertised. About Gift Aid 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.
