Great National Trust Days Out this Summer

We recently bought National Trust membership for the year so I’ve been busy making a list of where we can go to make the most of it.

The Vyne

We’ve been tree climbing with The Big Tree Company before and it was just fab, so this event at The Vyne in Basingstoke is a definite possibility as is making a trail with sticks on August 27th.


The Vyne also has a great Hobbit themed play area, complete with slides, tunnels and water pump, my children LOVE it there.

River Wey and Goldaming Navigations and Daphne Wharf

50 things Tuesdays sounds great as does building a water-way on Thursdays. There’s even outdoor theatre on Saturday 6th August.

Winkworth Aboretum

Winkworth Aboretum has a summer trail from August 1-20th which I really want to try as well.

Hatchlands Park

We had a great day last year at one of the Friday Fun Days at Hatchlands Park and definitely want to go back this year for more arts, crafts and giant garden games.

Hatchlands Park also has some lovely walks and a brilliant play area.

Basildon Park

I’ve wanted to try the Ball Run for years now, so am determined to actually make it this year.


Another of my favourite National Trust sites is Cliveden. Theres miles and miles of beautiful woodland, a fantastic storybook themed play area and even a maze.


I think that’s a whole summer of fun for FREE, well if you forget the cost of the annual pass, which was a bargain considering how many days out we will get from it.
