Pack a picnic and take a walk this weekend on one of our beautiful wildflower meadows. You could get involved with the Big Butterfly Count from 20 July to 12 August. Now is the perfect time of year to see the delicate butterflies and wildflowers at their colourful best.
If you like a classic car, and who doesn't, check out the car club visit schedule at Nuffield Place. Classic car owners show off their most cherished models in tribute to Lord Nuffield, a practical man with a passion for engineering who founded the Morris Motor Company.
Make the most of the summer by camping out under the stars at one of our special places in Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire such as Stowe or Buscot. The rangers put on incredible events with campfires, marshmallows and bat walks all on the cards.
Oxfordshire is perfect for country walking. There are wildflower meadows on the Buscot and Coleshill estate along the river in west Oxfordshire. White Horse Hill offers incredible views over six counties and there are rolling hills for gentle walks on the Greys Court estate in Oxfordshire.
Coleshill's open afternoons start again on 8 April. On the second Sunday of every month, see Coleshill's restored mill grinding grain into flour and explore the secret underground bunker - a replica of the Second World War Operational Base on the estate.
There are loads of friendly National Trust supporter groups in the Thames Valley. They help support our places like Stowe, Hughenden and Greys Court by volunteering and fundraising. They also get together for fun days out, holidays and lectures.
Summer's here at last. Why not play in the dappled shade of Cliveden's woodland, visit The Vyne or picnic on the chalk grassland of Maidenhead and Cookham Commons. There are lots of places to explore on a walk around Berkshire and the Thames Valley.
