As you can probably tell if you’ve had a look at the reviews, I’m a huge fan of the National Trust and English Heritage and the value for money they offer families. You might be surprised the variety of things you can do. These two charities offer access to houses, castles, gardens, woodlands, mills, beaches, mines and even Roman villas!! Because they’re dotted all over the country membership to either of these two can save you a fortune on admission fees whilst you’re on holiday as well!
Most of these places are family friendly and have trails and events specifically designed to entertain the children. The majority of the houses and gardens will have some form of playground as well.
The membership fee is absolutely worth the money. I’m sure you’ll agree that £120 per year (NT) or £99 (EH) is a small price to pay for endless days out all over the country. Given the entry costs of many of these places it only takes a couple of visits a year to make your money back and after that you’re quids in!
