The National Trust’s Summer of Play invites families over the summer school holidays to experience Trust places in new and exciting ways, sponsored by Starling Bank.
Set against the backdrop of the National Trust’s historic houses and beautiful gardens, Summer of Play activities will have a family-festival feel with designated areas chock-full of outdoor games and experiences. Let imaginations run wild with role play and mini stages, unlock limitless possibilities to design and build with construction zones, make art and music with nature’s materials, or slip away to a cosy book nook.
Give new (and old) sports a go with games including croquet and badminton. Get competitive with tug of war and egg and spoon races. Or, put your skills to the test with den building and mazes.
Designed with families in mind, Summer of Play activities will be dotted around National Trust places, so there’ll be plenty of space to enjoy the games and activities as well as picnicking spots, shady rest areas and of course, toilets, cafes and pop-up kiosks offering refreshing food and drink.
