A weekly newsletter about
stuff that kids love 

The National Trust

An independent charity and membership organisation for environmental and heritage conservation in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.



National Trust stately homes, castles and gardens can be found all over the British Isles. Memberships packages come in all shapes and sizes, or you can buy visitor tickets on the day.

Many of the ones below run summer workshops, from puppet-making to being a Victorian for a day. One has an open-air theatre, one celebrates 100 years since the first female MP was elected, another celebrates 40 years of the Polka Theatre. All have walks, play areas and cafes, with an occasional ice-cream van, teddy bears picnic and even an annual family camping weekend among them. Plenty of choice for your family!

We have a new app feature!
Update yours to access a number of upcoming events selected each week by The List. These will sit next to our newsletters and podcasts, everything lovingly curated by Kinfo to ease the journey of parenting.

Our virtual library re-opens in August – a month of reading recommendations – so we need your books. Please share 1 or 10!
