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.
