50 Things to do before you're 11 ¾

How long has it been since you jumped over waves, explored a cave, cooked on a campfire or went rockpooling?

We want to help kids and families reconnect with nature and the seaside. The holidays are here and there's no better time to head to the coast!

Beautiful beaches

Rugged cliffs for walking and soaking up the sea views, cool bays for catching waves, beautiful beaches for picnicking... we've got them all. Plan your summer visit now.

Share your love for the coast

As an island nation we all feel a strong connection to the coast. In 2015 we're celebrating everything that makes the seaside special. Dr John Cooper Clarke has created a coastal poem for the nation which we want you to help complete. Watch our specially commissioned TV and cinema ad and get involved - share your love of the coast with us using #lovethecoast

Outdoor Screen Season

This summer we're teaming up with the British Film Institute (BFI) and The Luna Cinema to bring you the National Trust Screen Season – special alfresco cinema screenings at five places we look after.
