May half-term in Norfolk

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

A child sowing seed in a pot

Blickling Estate 

Why not bring your bikes for a family cycle ride around the Park on our new cycle trail, enjoy an adventure in the woods or discover what life was like for a servant in the house? We'll also be holding our 'sow and grow' activity in the Walled Garden on Tuesday 30 May.

A young family bird watching

Felbrigg Hall 

Enjoy your own family adventure at Felbrigg - all you need is a little imagination. From birdwatching down by the lake to den building in the woods, will you be able to find one of our four hollow trees on the estate and see if you can fit inside?

Two boys skimming stones

Norfolk Coast 

Join us for Terrific Tuesday at Blakeney Quay, or Wild Wednesday and 50 Things Thursday on Brancaster Beach this May half-term. There’s no need to book, simply drop in between 10am and 4pm to enjoy crabbing, kite flying, stone skimming and epic sandcastle building!

Children walking in their wellies

Oxburgh Hall 

Join us for muddy boots month. The Estate at Oxburgh is the perfect place to explore with the family, just bring your wellies. We’ll be running a series of events too this half-term, including nest box building and the chance to go wild in the woods when our rangers will be passing on their forestry skills.

A child pond dipping at Sheringham Park

Sheringham Park 

Building a den, walking barefoot or finding a geocache are just some of the activities you can tick off at Sheringham Park this May half-term. We'll also be staying open until 7pm throughout the week so you can make the most of the long evenings.

Every muddy day out helps us care for special places for half-terms to come
