February half-term in the East of England

There are lots of opportunities at National Trust places in the East of England for kids to get messy, muddy and back in touch with nature this February half-term. Here are some of our favourite places to go for a wild family day out this half-term.

Chute Wood at Dunstable Downs is the perfect place to build your orientation skills with the natural playscape. Discover who has set up home in our bug hotel and be inspired to create a home for nature in your own garden.

It doesn't matter what time of the year you visit Wimpole Home Farm, there's always a new arrival to meet. Over at Wicken Fen we'll be celebrating a rather feathery February, with a choice of half-term events that involve getting your hands dirty.

Whatever the weather there's somewhere to take the family this February half-term. At Ickworth you can enjoy exploring the great outdoors on a mini-adventure and if the heavens open, head inside to the West Wing Gallery for our drop-in craft activities.
