10 of the best UK outdoor family culture trips: readers’ travel tips

Winning tip: Wayland’s Smithy, Ashbury, Oxfordshire

An ancient burial mound in a moody copse, about 20 minutes’ walk from White Horse Hill, at Uffington. A walk here takes in gently undulating farmland, with plenty of sloes to collect from well-stocked hedgerows. A trip to this section of the Ridgeway is best finished with a picnic and a spot of kite flying near the iron age fort at Uffington.

Open-air Shakespeare … on the move

The Handlebards are groups of four actors who cycle the country performing their own unique interpretation of Shakespeare plays. They carry everything for their irreverent performances with them, and play in halls, gardens and parks en route. Hilarious! Ticket prices from pay what you can to – typically – £15.

You’ll happen upon an array of sculptures as you explore farmland, woodland and riverside walks here. The changing programme includes big names and emerging artists, and there are indoor galleries too. There’s something inspiring about getting up close to sculptures in the open air – many of them are of awe-inspiring scale, and can be walked inside or interacted with. You can also try your hand at ceramics, printmaking and sculpture, and explore nature through bushcraft activities and outdoor storytelling sessions.
