Out & About with Family

Looking to explore the heritage and beauty of England closer to home? Want just a day or weekend activity that is fun for the whole family? Try one of the many outings listed below. Driving times are approximate; we have used Egham as a starting point.

This is just a short list of the many places there are to discover. If your family enjoyed an adventure that you think others would enjoy, please let us know at Parents' Council Communications

Two national organizations, English Heritage  and  The National Trust will enable you to explore some of Britain's most beautiful palaces, houses and gardens. Several properties are listed below, but a full list can be found on their websites along with membership information. Select a property in your area and travel no more than 30 minutes.

English Heritage is the Government's statutory adviser on the historic environment and exists to protect and promote England's spectacular historic environment. They are also responsible for looking after the historic environment as a whole, including historic buildings, monuments and areas, and archaeological remains.

The National Trust is a charity and is run completely independent of Government. It protects and keeps open to the public hundreds of historic houses and gardens, industrial monuments and mills, forests, woods, farmland, downs, moorland, islands, archaeological remains, castles, nature reserves, and villages.
