Hearty feast? Vintage car show? Or just a great day out with the family flying a kite and ticking off one of those 50 Things... Our places have got plenty of activities to keep all the family busy.


Our houses show world-famous art from historic figures and local community work alongside contemporary art and installations in our Trust New Art programme.


Our farmers' markets are held throughout the year, selling the best fresh and seasonal produce direct from local farmers.
