From spring-themed trails to outdoor games and activities to get closer to nature, there’s plenty to entertain little explorers at National Trust places this May half term.
Make the most of the warmer weather and longer late-spring days by planning a family visit to a National Trust place near you.
Enjoy the simple pleasures of being outdoors together, whether playing on lush green lawns, creating adventures through woodlands and secret gardens, or settling into a picture-perfect picnic spot for the afternoon.
This summer, and back by popular demand, the straw bales will be returning to the Field of Play at Attingham Park.
Following the success of last year’s straw bale maze and mountain, this year we will be introducing ‘Fort Attingham’, a brand-new straw bale fort for families to explore from 27 May until mid-September.
Get green fingered at Dudmaston this May half term. Plant a seed, take it home and watch it grow. Complete ‘No.41 Help a Plant Grow’ from the National Trust’s 50 things to do before you’re 11 and ¾’. A range of different seeds will be available, and we’ll tell you how to take care of your plant as it grows. The activity costs £2 to take part plus admission. Free entry for National Trust members.
Dudmaston is closed on Fridays and Saturdays, but nearby Comer Woods will be open to explore.
