HAVE YOU ever wondered what you might find in a rockpool or fancied building the biggest woodland den?

There’s lots of things to do just like this every day of the summer at East Riddlesden Hall or other National Trust properties across Yorkshire.

Here I’ll tell you just some of what you can enjoy with us during the school summer holidays.

The Discovery Garden at East Riddlesden Hall will have the kids looking for bugs and hiding in the Hobbit House, whilst the mud pie kitchen is the perfect place for budding chefs to get creative.

Spend some time in the bird hide - the perfect place to spy on local wildlife. For those looking for a bit more adventure, the natural play area is the place to burn off some energy.

There's plenty for mum and dad to enjoy as well as the kids on a trip to Beningbrough Hall, gallery and gardens, near York.

Make a family portrait, dress up in gowns and masks and imagine you're all lords and ladies from the 18th century. We've also got family art workshops every Wednesday and Sunday.

Don't forget to visit the wilderness play area with swings, climbing frame and den building zone.

Spend the day in Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal water garden and you'll spot some extraordinary artworks with 'Folly!'.

Pick up a 'marvellously magical family map' to create your journey with strange surprises and mystical goings on to excite the imagination.

This summer you can also book to join one of our den building sessions - roll up your sleeves to make the biggest den you've ever seen or dress up to see what life was like for monks in the Middle Ages on a Family Abbey Tour.

There's plenty to enjoy at Nostell Priory and Parkland near Wakefield, with a jam-packed activity programme five days a week.

We've even added a zip wire to the adventure play area which is open just in time for the school holidays.

When the sun's out, there's no better place to be than to hit the beach, so people can go along to Saltburn or Robin Hood's Bay with their bucket and spade.

Look out for special days when our rangers will be running rockpool rambles, helping to identify what creatures live along the shoreline.

Staff at Robin Hood's Bay's Old Coastguard Station will also help to identify any unusual finds.

Join us for some of our 24 hour bioblitz survey - help us monitor different species that live around Ravenscar on August 15 and 16.
