National Parks Week is an annual celebration of the amazing places, people, and things to be found within the boundaries of the 15 members of the National Parks family. This year, it takes place from 28 July to 3 August.
From Snowdonia to the Pembrokeshire Coast, the North York Moors to the New Forest and the Cairngorms to Loch Lomond, the National Parks are truly the breathing spaces of Britain encompassing beautiful areas of mountains, meadows, moorlands, woods and wetlands.
The celebratory week hosts a variety of events to help everyone explore the best that the parks have to offer. There’s melon rolling at Gilbert White’s home in Hampshire, a chance to meet pirates in Arundel, family canoe trips in the Broads, Highland Games in the Cairngorms, a seashore safari in Exmoor, warrior school in Northumberland, rug ragging and blacksmithing in the North York Moors, following the footsteps of monks in the Yorkshire Dales and much much more. Visit the National Parks website for more info.
