Last year I wrote about our trip to Uppark House and Gardens on the National Trust free weekend and they're doing it again this weekend - the 20th and 21st April. All you have to do is visit the National Trust website, download the voucher and you can get a free day out for up to 2 adults and 2 kids. They are opening up over 200 of their properties for this and there's bound to be one near you. The website has full details of which properties are included.
For those of you who remember the National Trust as just a bunch of stuffy old houses it really has changed and lots of the properties provide loads of kid friendly activities including trails to follow, activity packs and toy boxes. And of course most of them have lots and lots of lovely outside space for the kids to run around.
We had a blast last year at Uppark, exploring the gardens, rolling down hills, following the garden trail, seeing the biggest dolls house ever and making echoes in the underground tunnels.
