Gift aid explained
Why are there two different admission prices?
Under the gift aid scheme amendments introduced by the Government in April 2006, charitieswho offer entrance to an attraction based on gift aid donation rather than an admission ticketmust ask visitors to pay 10% extra than the normal admission fee. It is your choice whether you wish to do this or not.
