Current Tickets & Prices

If you are a UK taxpayer and you make a donation that is 10% more than the admission price the Government will give us an extra 25% on top of your entrance fee. It’s called a gift aid and makes a massive difference to Charities like the Canterbury Oast Trust.

To learn more about Gift Aid click here (Link to FAQs in Digitickets pages)

The money raised by the Rare Breeds Centre (part of the Canterbury Oast Trust) enables us to continue our valuable work to offer opportunities and training to people with learning disabilities.

Gift Aid is entirely voluntary and you can help us by selecting the Gift Aid option. If you'd rather not Gift Aid, choose a 'Non-Gift Aid' ticket when booking online.

Unfortunately we don't allow dogs on site as they scare our animals.
