As an independent charity (1060000) Hestercombe relies on the generous support of individuals and other charitable organisations to continue with our award-winning restoration, maintenance and development of these historic gardens and buildings.
There are a number of ways that you can contribute towards this valuable work from purchasing an annual membership through to contributing to our popular ‘Buy a Brick’ campaign. Follow the links below to find out how you can help to support and safeguard the future of Hestercombe for generations to come.
The most rewarding and enjoyable way to support Hestercombe is simply to visit. Every penny of an entry ticket purchased, souvenir bought and scone scoffed contributes directly towards the continuing development of Hestercombe. Go to our Your Visit page to find out more about our opening times and entry prices, or our What’s On page for events, exhibitions, talks and workshops on offer to visitors the whole year round.
Over the last 30 years Hestercombe’s historic landscape and its unique, world famous gardens have been lovingly restored.
However, Hestercombe’s closure due to the Covid-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on Hestercombe Gardens Trust’s finances. We’re an independent charity without the safety net of larger organisations, and we must now raise substantial funds to ensure Hestercombe continues to thrive and to help secure its magnificent heritage for future generations.
We would be incredibly grateful for any donation that you are able to give. Thank you.
If you are a UK taxpayer and you select ‘Please Gift Aid this donation’, the UK Government will give Hestercombe Gardens Trust an additional contribution of 25% at no extra cost to you.
