February half-term in the South East

We'd love to see you this February half-term at your local National Trust place for some fun family activities. Visit Mottisfont in Hampshire for fun inspired by the eccentric and hilarious illustrations in the Heath Robinson exhibition or explore the garden and woods to discover hidden treasures at Nymans in West Sussex. There are plenty of ways to keep the kids entertained in the South East this half-term.
