Come rain or shine…
Regardless of what the weatherman says, we have plenty of great ideas for an entertaining day out.
1. Stonehenge: Uncover Secrets
With the new state of the art visitor centre now open, you can enjoy an exciting day out mixing indoor and outdoor activities. The visitor centre includes an exhibition of artefacts, brought together for the first time, and interactive displays. Don’t miss the virtual 360-degree experience, which lets you ‘stand in the stones’ transporting you back in time through the millennia. You can also experience the summer and winter solstices.
2. Head to the beach!
Queen Victoria's private beach at Osborne on the Isle of Wight, is ideal for watching stormy waves crash against the shore or, the perfect place for an ice cream if the sun breaks through the clouds! Queen Victoria spent many enjoyable hours on the beach with her family, why not follow in her footsteps and discover this tranquil location for yourself?
3. Holiday adventures
We have plenty of opportunity for stomping through rain and mud for the little adventurers in your family. There are many quests and trails to enjoy over the holidays to burn off some energy and inspire young minds. Look out for larger events and costumed interpreters at some of our bigger sites across the country.

4. It's always the weather for tea and cake
What better way to dry out after a rain shower or hide from the heat than with afternoon (or mid-morning!) tea and cake at one of our cafes. Relax in the magnificent surroundings of Kenilworth Castle's timber-framed stables tearoom, or enjoy the views from the spacious cafes of Wrest Park and Audley End House and Gardens, both in the East of England.
Visit Kenilworth Castle, Wrest Park and Audley End House and Gardens
5. Stand in England's history
With a fun audio tour made for kids and touch screen displays, Battle Abbey's indoor Discovery Centre is perfect for keeping children entertained as they find out all about Saxon and Norman life. If the sun does decide to shine, make the most of it in the tranquil Walled Garden, or head out and tramp around the battlefield itself.
Visit 1066 Battle of Hastings, Abbey and Battlefield
6. England's largest castle
The rain and fog may obscure your view across the Channel to France, but don't let that stop you having a great day out at Dover Castle, Kent. You're guaranteed to stay dry as you tour the underground tunnels before climbing up the Great Tower - fully re-created in the vibrant colours of the medieval period. With guided tours, games for the kids and three tea rooms, there is plenty to keep all the family busy.

7. Check out an original pair of wellies!
Find out how your wellies match up to those of the Duke of Wellington at Walmer. Home to the Duke for 23 years, his spirit lives on at the castle with a pair of his original 'Wellington boots' on show. And if the sun shines, the gardens are full of wild flowers, insects and birds to spot.
Visit Walmer Castle and Gardens
8. Horses, dressage and stunning Peak District views
Its prime position atop a hillside in Derbyshire may expose Bolsover Castle and its visitors to the elements, but step in from the outside to the 17th-century at our magnificent Riding School.
Visit Bolsover Castle
9. Hit the coast
Perfect for over active imaginations, Pendennis Castle is an explorer's Cornish paradise. From gun decks and a hands-on model of the castle to stepping into the shoes of a soldier on parade, there is plenty to entertain if the sea is looking stormy. And what better way to recover from a hard day's exploring than by grabbing a cup of tea in the Barracks tearoom?

10. Explore the Home of Charles Darwin
Enjoy a fascinating day out at Down House in Kent and find out more about the life of Charles Darwin and his theories of evolution. Step inside his home and discover the very place where his ideas became the basis for pioneering science. Kids can get hands on with the exhibitions and you can even see the study where he wrote 'On the Origin of Species', still as it was when he worked here.
