Family fun this Summer in the outdoors at Basildon Park
As the schools break up and the summer fun begins, Basildon Park is ideal for making the most of the nicer weather (fingers crossed). For families wanting adventures in the outdoors there are 400 acres to explore.
In late Spring and early Summer, butterflies start emerging across the South East. Try one of our butterfly themed downloadable walks and see if you can spot beauties like the Adonis blue on a walk at Newtimber Hill in West Sussex, or the Purple emperor at one of our Surrey Hills sites.
Gather up your family and friends, pack your favourite summer lunch and seek out the perfect spot to unroll your picnic blanket on a visit to our countryside and gardens in the South East. Follow in the footsteps of Jane Austen’s Emma, who famously picnicked at Box Hill, or set up on top of Devil’s Dyke for glorious views of the rolling South Downs.
