Cheap things to do

Low cost

Throughout the year, national parks, stately homes and museums and galleries host a wealth of activities for all the family to enjoy that each cost less than £10 to attend. They range from classical concerts in spectacular grounds, to arts and crafts workshops and meet-the-wildlife days where children can get close to different animals. Listen to a choral concert by a professional choir for the price of a small donation to the cathedral by sitting in on their rehearsal time. An annual membership to an organisation such as English Heritage will provide you with a year’s entrance to more than 400 historic sites.
