Take the whole family on a bike ride

'Go on a really long bike ride’ was chosen by our Kids’ Council as one of the top three activities for this year’s 50 things campaign, so we’ve come up with the best places for little legs (and longer ones too) to pedal around in the great outdoors.



I like going on a really long bike ride because when you go along at high speed the wind goes through your hair you feel like you have accomplished something

History for kids

Let your kids become time-travellers and play at soldiers at Chedworth Roman Villa, explore a secret wartime airbase at Croome or witness the machines of the Industrial Revolution in action at Quarry Bank Mill.

Rainy day fun

We don't believe that rain should ever stop play. We've put together your essential guide for you and your family to have fun, whatever the weather.

Lamb spotting

Spring has sprung when you catch your first glimpse of newborn lambs. See how many you can count when you go for a family walk at your favourite place.
