Summer's calling

Tennis nets made out of bunting on the main lawn of Antony house

Ditch the remote control, escape the city and keep the kids entertained with a packed programme of summer fun. There are activities, trails and games to suit all tastes so no one's getting bored.

Outdoor games suitable for a range of ages and abilites are available on the lawn throughout the summer including croquet, giant jenga and connect four. A summer garden trail runs everyday from Tues 25 Jul - Thu 31 Aug (£1.50 per trail, includes prize). Are you up to the challenge?

Anyone for tennis?

Sunday 9 July and Sunday 16 July, 12noon - 4.30pm

Tennis nets made out of bunting set in glorious surrounds. Game. Set. Match. This is tennis with a National Trust twist. Feel free to bring your own tennis rackets along and pretend to to be a Wimbledon champion. Onlookers might feel the need for a cream tea on the sideline.

Summer holidays

Have a go at creating creatures from natural materials in the garden, see our den building area for the first time, catch a creepy crawly and learn all about it. This is a great opportunity to tick off one of the 50 things. Activities run from 12noon - 3pm (£2 per child). To find out more get in touch on 01752 812 191 or email us
