Take your wild bunch out on a den building adventure

Nature misses you

This summer we'd like to help you and your children explore the great outdoors and get really close to nature. We're hoping to get 200,000 children playing outside and having a wild time.

So if you know a budding builder or aspiring architect then feed their imagination by taking them to one of our best places to build a den, where they can tick off number 4 on our list of 50 things to do before you’re 11 ¾.

Summer events

Join us at one of our events this summer. We've an exhibition by Quentin Blake at Mottisfont, 50 things events up and down the country, outdoor theatre and a new series of First World War poetry walks.

Get outside and active this summer

If you feel like getting active in the outdoors this summer then we’ve got lots of ideas. Explore somewhere by paddle power at one of our top canoeing spots. If you feel like making a weekend of it then check out some of our places to stay by the water.

Best beaches

Pack a picnic and head for the coast for a memorable day out. We can help you find the best beach for families, dog-friendly beaches, or secret places to spot some wildlife. If you're planning on getting wet take a look at our top surfing beaches or discover the perfect places to canoe or kayak.
