National Trust Nostell has a packed summer holiday coming up, with different activities to try every weekday and pop-up family fun on weekends.

Each week kicks off with plenty of ways to get closer to nature and for little explorers to fill in their scrapbooks of 50 things to do before you’re 11 ¾. Mucky Mondays are all about making mud pies, hunting for bugs and messy water play and on 50 Things Tuesdays families can craft their own kites, create wild art and have a go at campfire cooking.

Bring your bikes on Active Wednesdays to try out the brand new woodland cycle trails, pick up tips from Wakefield District Cycle Forum and collect your summer of sport stamps with fun and games on the vista.

On Collections Thursdays, mini makers can take inspiration from Nostell’s treasures and create their own mini masterpieces in the new Workshop.

Every Sketchbook Friday you can build your own collection of artworks, perfecting your skills in drawing and colouring. Don’t forget on any day you visit, you can and swing, wobble and slide in the outdoor play area and pick up family trails to explore in your own time.

Daily activities are free with an admission ticket (free for National Trust members).
