May half term at Souter Lighthouse and The Leas

There are plenty of activities to keep the kids busy during May half term at Souter Lighthouse and The Leas.

Monday 31 May - Friday 4 June: follow a sensory trail and tune into things you can see, hear, feel and even smell as you explore the coast. Head to the National Trust van and ask a member of the team for a free activity sheet.

Or you can print our nature wheels before you go for a walk, then try to spot as many things as possible to match each texture and colour:

If you fancy a fun way to keep fit, give our Active Mile course a go at any time. From the starting point near the car park, follow way markers around the coastal park, pausing at each one to give a different exercise a go.

You can also try our 50 things to do before you're 11 3/4 trail and tick some mini adventures off your list.
 

When the outdoor adventures are done, there's no need to leave for home empty handed. Wooden bunny craft kits are £5 each, activity pack included. Available from the National Trust van.

If you plan to visit the lighthouse, we'd advise booking during busier times. Visit our what's on page to choose a date and time.
