May half-term in Suffolk

There are lots of opportunities at National Trust places in Suffolk 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.

Family discover a den built on the Natural Play trail at Box Hill, Surrey.


If you're planning to visit Flatford this half-term, call into our Visitor Centre to pick up a family activity pack to help you make the most of exploring the area.

Children climbing a tree


Celebrate spring with craft activities in Ickworth's West Wing Gallery and if you’re feeling more adventurous, why not become a nature detective with the help of our family explorer pack?

Visitors on the roof of the 'bomb ballistics' building at Orford Ness, Suffolk

Orford Ness 

A top secret military testing site, Orford Ness is certainly a different experience when choosing your next family day out. Become a spy for the day with our children's spy trail, pick up your booklet before heading across to this secret 'island' by boat.

Sutton Hoo Boy and Helmet

Sutton Hoo 

There's plenty of space at Sutton Hoo to create your own fun during the day, whether that's climbing trees or pretending to be an Anglo-Saxon warrior. Then after dark, why not book on one of our organised night-time activities from nature walks to star gazing.
