50 things to do before you're 11 ¾

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.

With almost 750 miles of coastline around England, Wales and Northern Ireland, we care for some of the most beautiful stretches of coast and  family-friendly beaches, just perfect for ticking off our top ten '50 things' beach activities.

Summer events

Join us at one of our events this summer. Plan a family day out around our 50 things events, book a ticket for some outdoor theatre or bring your pooch to one of our events for your dog.

Gardening tips for July

July is a busy time in our gardens and parks. Luckily we have experts at hand to make sure they are well looked after. Jonny Bass is our head gardener at Mottisfont and has been busy maintaining the rose garden there. He’s got some tips on how to keep your own garden in top condition over the summer.

National Parks Week

What better way to celebrate National Parks Week than to pack your rucksack and head off for one of our two-day National Park walks. We've lots of inspirational ideas to help you get outdoors and enjoy these spectacular places this summer. Try running in the Yorkshire Dales, watersports in the Lake District or the simple pleasures of a long walk in the South Downs.
