50 things to do before you’re 11¾

We want to get children outdoors and closer to nature this summer so we’ve compiled a list of 50 things to do before you’re 11¾.

To get started on your list you can head to one of the gardens we care for, or simply use your own. Here you can become an outdoor explorer as you hunt for bugs or learn some survival skills as you forage for blackberries.

Summer events

Plan a visit to one of our summer events. We have outdoor theatre up and down the country as well as exhibitions and activities. We've also got loads of 50 things events.

Try one of our summer recipes

Our kitchen gardens have been full of berries this summer, so chef Clive Goudercourt has been busy using them in our kitchen. Here he's using some from Greys Court to make a summer classic, Eton mess.

Rainy day ideas

Don't let the wet weather keep you indoors, we've got lots of ideas for rainy days. Visit one of our many castles or find somewhere that has featured on film using our movie map.

Latest news

Our shop favourites

Our buyers spend all their time tracking down products for our online shop that are both unique and authentic. We asked them to tell us about their favourite products, and this is what they chose.

Become a member

Why not join us for a year of more days out than in? We offer individual, joint and family memberships and as your fee goes towards keeping these places special, you'll be preserving them for generations to come.

Go glamping

Come away with us this summer and you can sleep out in style. We’ve got deluxe camping pods just perfect for those who like the great outdoors without the fuss. We’ve also got yurts for those in need of an exotic alternative.

Walk the dog

Let your four-legged friend run free at one of places. We have lots of regular furry visitors and miles of countryside for them to explore. Find a dog friendly holiday cottage for a weekend break or try making some of our dog biscuits.
