Buy your tickets online now as usual and be sure to tick one of the boxes offering you the chance to make your payment as a gift to the Eden Trust. Quick question before you buy your ticket online?

Gift Aid

Gift Aid is a very simple idea from the taxman which enables The Eden Trust to reclaim the tax paid on donations. If instead of paying our entry fee you make a donation to Eden of equal value you will get, in return, entry to Eden AND can come back free of charge as many times as you like for the next 12 months. If you choose to make a gift to us the taxman will then pay us 25p in the £ on that donation which will be additional funding for our charitable work. There's no catch. You win. We win. And the taxman's happy. We need to ask whether you are a UK taxpayer and pay enough income tax or capital gains tax to cover the amount of tax we will reclaim from the taxman (most of our visitors easily do) and whether us Gift Aiding your donation is OK by you.

Already visited us?

If you have already visited us and were kind enough to allow us to treat your admission as a donation then you’re eligible for a free Advance Pass.

If you've lost your pass but it is still valid and you would like to visit us, we will be able to help you at the Visitor Centre admissions desk. Please bring along a form of identity (a photo-card driving license is best). Please arrive a few minutes early when you visit so that we can look you up on our system.
