Gift Aid

giftaid it

As the National Motor Museum is a registered charity (no. 1107656) you can Gift Aid part of your admission to Beaulieu.

Gift Aid costs you nothing – but helps us a lot. If you are a UK Income or Capital Gains taxpayer, we can claim back from the government the tax you have already paid on 60% of the admission price.

If you are buying tickets in advance, check the Gift Aid option during the purchase process or if buying on arrival, please complete a Gift Aid declaration in Visitor Reception. All we require is your name and home address (which we will only share with HM Revenue and Customs when requested), and we will do the rest. You don’t even need to declare your donation.

To us, your contribution will be worth an extra 25p for every £1 you allow us to reclaim in this way. This donation will be put to good use by the National Motor Museum Trust in the preservation of the historic vehicles and unique collections in our care.
