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.

Wherever your summer holidays take you, we've got loads of activity ideas for every location. If you're staying at home there's plenty of ways to have fun in your back garden or a local park, or if you're on holiday try some of our 50 things to do at the beach.

Summer events

Pack a picnic and join us for some outdoor music and theatre, from Peter Pan to Sherlock Holmes, in beautiful settings up and down the country. We've also got music from The London Welsh Male Voice Choir at Salisbury City Hall, plus lots more going on.

Gardening tips for August

We look after a vast array of gardens and our gardeners really know their stuff. For those who would like to get their fingers green over the summer months Heather Aston, our head gardener at Upton House, has some great August advice on strawberries.

Bank holiday ideas

If you're planning a long journey this weekend, make a pit stop at one of places and let the passengers really stretch their legs. We've got lots of adventures for families and plenty of great bank holiday stops-offs that aren't too far from main roads.
