We love National Trust days out here at Mini Travellers! They’re great for families, with lots of activities and details to appeal to children of all ages.

Whether you are looking for a walk in the fresh air, to explore a country house or to play on an adventure playground, we’re sure you’ll find one of these National Trust days out in the East of England to suit you.


Anglesey Abbey

Anglesey Abbey has a wildlife discovery area designed especially for children. They can explore the story circle and cupboard, wildlife and art cabin, dream dome for toddlers, double floored tree house and the willow and stick woven tunnels.

Sonia, from Mummy Constant, says: “we had a picnic lunch near the tree house and then spent the entire afternoon wandering around. We made it to the mill and around that way, the gardens are so pretty and the children had a lovely time. I still cannot believe we spent 6 hours there, it went so quickly and was the perfect day for it”

Felbrigg Hall

Felbrigg Hall, Gardens and Estate is described as a hidden gem, with 520 acres of woods including parkland and a lake.

Emily, from Emily and Indiana, says: “we stopped to play with the provided outdoor games. Hula hoops, cones, balls and plastic rackets – I can imagine these are hugely popular in the summer months. We all enjoyed them though and even had a mini game of frisbee before we had to leave”

Sutton Hoo

Sutton Hoo offers a great day out for all the family, especially if you mini archeologists in the family. There is plenty to see and do with adventure playgrounds, activity and tracker packs and seeing a king laying in state, surrounded by his treasures.

Trish, from Mums Gone To… says: “Children can try on typical Anglo Saxon clothes, peep inside a full size replica of a burial chamber and listen to taster talks by the cheerful, enthusiastic Sutton Hoo Society guides. Most people come here to see the famous mask and although it is only a replica, there is something quite arresting about it”

Sheringham Park

Sheringham Park has 1000 acres of landscape park and woodland gardens to explore. Children’s tracker packs are available and regular activities are held throughout the year, especially during the school holidays.

Emily, from Emily and Indiana, says: “We jumped in the mud, crunched in the fallen leaves and found and explored nearly every little nook and cranny Parker and Indie found. Parker explored so far at one point he got stuck, and Jack had to go in and rescue him”

The Globe Trotter

We had been to Sutton Hoo a couple of months back and liked it. The exhibition was interesting as was the visit to Tranmer House. The volunteer guides in Tranmer House were fantastic, sharing a lot of information about the history of the house and its inhabitants. Definitely a must visit if in the area.
