It's time to get out into the countryside to chase butterflies, smell the biscuity warm earth and picnic on the grass. Amble along the woodland trails at Hughenden or hike the countryside of the Chilterns.
From waterlilies in the lakes at Sheffield Park in Sussex, rambling roses at the world-famous rose garden at Mottisfont in Hampshire to the secret garden charms of the garden at Fenton House in Hampstead, London, you're bound to find a blaze of glorious garden colour at your local National Trust garden in the South East.
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.
