National Parks Week

Stuck for something to do with the kids? It’s National Parks Week!

Britain is considered blessed for the sprawling greenery of our national parks, and this week (July 25th – 31st) we celebrate these wonderful areas of the outdoors with various events happening across all the sites.

This years National parks week is said to be great fun for all ages and abilities, whether you are deer watching in Exmoor, or learning of myths and legends in Dartmoor there is plenty for all the family to get involved with.

The week’s celebration falls just nicely in the children’s Summer Holidays and will make an ideal event for families looking to get the little ones outdoors and away from the games console.

This isn’t just a family event though, keen walkers can get involved with guided walks and tours of varying difficulty. The event is a fantastic way to support the parks and to get to know them a little better with resident park experts.

The UK’s National Park areas include:
Brecon Beacons
Lake District
Loch Lomond and the Trossachs
New Forest
North York Moors
Peak District
Pembrokeshire Coast
South Downs
Yorkshire Dales
