The Tapeley gift shop is where visitors buy tickets upon arrival. In addition to daily admission fees (£6 adults/£5 senior citizens/£4 children). A family ticket (2 adults, 2 children is £15) and the Friends of Tapeley scheme allows unlimited entry all season for just £20. The gift shop offers a range of maps, postcards and guide books for the gardens. It houses a fantastic selection of postcards and gifts, some quite unique – from Quail china animals and mugs to Otterdene gift items for children and Fikkerts soaps and essential oils and creams.
In keeping with the Tapeley Park ethos of supporting the local community, the gift shop also sells a selection of gifts, locally made jams and chutneys. The gift shop is also the first port of call for those wishing to arrange a tour of the house. Tours are subject to Hector’s availability and must be pre-booked at least two weeks in advance.
