Please support us with Gift Aid

If you are a UK taxpayer you can help support York Castle Museum further by adding Gift Aid to your admission. This means that for every £1 you spend on your tickets, we can claim back 25p from the UK Government to help fund all of the great work that we do. Tick the box below if you'd like to add Gift Aid to your admission.

I am a current UK taxpayer as identified by my given address and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in this tax year it is my responsibility to pay any difference. Please notify YMT if you wish to cancel this donation, change your name or address, or no longer pay sufficient tax on your Income and/or Capital Gains.
