3 National Trust days out with Children in London

We love National Trust days out here at Mini Travellers and we were surprised to learn the other day that some people still don’t think their properties are suitable for children.  When we head to London though we don’t naturally think of visiting a National Trust property but here are three ideas that show you should!

The National Trust has put children at the heart of a lot of their properties over the last few years and if your last experience of a visit was when you were a child then you need to go back, as things have changed a lot! Whether you are visiting simply for some fresh air, to ride a bike or to play in one of the many adventure playgrounds we are sure you will find a National Trust property in London that you will love.

Sutton House not only shows you the stunning Tudor designs expected from a National Trust property, but also has rooms showcasing the fact the house was inhabited by squatters during the 80’s. Lucy, from Project: Urban Wildling, says: “Most of the rooms were surprisingly toddler-safe, with very few breakable objects to be threatened. In fact, the whole house was very child-friendly – there were toys stashed away in some of the chests downstairs and upstairs we found tents set up in two of the rooms”…read more
