Best Things To Do & Days Out In Surrey

Looking for exciting things to do in Surrey with the kids? You’re in luck - thrills, animals, nature and more, we’ve got it all! 

 

Let’s get the big one out of the way! Thorpe Park, home of Saw - The Ride, UK’s only winged roller coaster, Stealth - one of Europe's fastest roller coasters, and lots more big thrills, is a must-do day out for adrenaline seekers and daredevils alike. 

If you’d rather escape the noise and the crowds, head out to RHS Garden Wisley or explore Polesden Lacey, an Edwardian manor with 1400 acres of woodlands and natural play areas for the kids. Fancy adding a royal touch to your family day out in Surrey? Hampton Court Palace is the place to visit! 

If you’re considering what to do with the kids out in nature, the Box Hill area is a lovely place to explore. The Box Hill Spy Mission Treasure Trail is quite fun too. And if you’re feeling like channeling your inner farmer - Godstone Farm is a great Surrey attraction for families. 

Last but not least, we think your kids will love Hobbledown. Based on the magical fantasy book of the same name, this is a mystical farm park adventure that’s definitely out of the ordinary. Make sure you put it on your list of things to do in Surrey! 

Oh, and before you go, you may want to check out the UK school holidays dates, so you can start thinking about your next family outing ahead of time.
