Tick off number 7 of your 50 things, fly a kite

Let’s go fly a kite, up to the highest height. We love seeing all different shapes, sizes and colours of kites flying in our skies.

Whether you have a small homemade sail or a high speed canopy, we have picked out our top ten places for you to decorate the sky.

On top of the world

The top of Clent Hills is one of the highest points in Worcestershire, which makes it a very popular kite flying spot, great for watching other kites and getting top tips.

Staying up really high, do you think you can get your kite high enough to fly over the hill fort at Croft Castle in Herefordshire? Or maybe you can get as high as the tower of Tattershall Castle in Lincolnshire, now there’s a challenge.

Get a running start

If you’re visiting Worcestershire, you can get a running start from the top of the gentle sloping hill that overlooks Croome’s estate to get some extra wind behind you.

If you’re looking for a stunning back drop to tick off this 50 things activity head to Hanbury Hall’s orangery lawn in Worcestershire or the front lawn of Baddesley Clinton in Warwickshire.

Acres and acres of space

Acre upon acre of open parkland awaits you at Lincolnshire’s Belton House, Derbyshire’s Kedleston Hall, Warwickshire’s Charlecote Park and Herefordshire’s Berrington Hall.
