5th April 2021
The lockdown restrictions are finally lifting, we’re allowed to venture a little further from home, but where to go?! We’ve put together a few of our favourite Surrey spots which may just help keep the children entertained this Easter.
RHS Wisley – always popular – and with the daffodils out and cherry blossoms in bloom it’s looking particularly beautiful. Wisley are currently running an Easter Trail that you can follow to learn about the chocolate making process…and collect your ‘Chocolate and Love’ goody bag filled with activities (and of course a little chocolate!). Current restrictions mean you’ll need to book ahead.
Windsor Great Park – just outside the M25, this vast expanse of woodlands, lakes and gardens is steeped in history and a home to a wide range of wildlife. Free to visit (no need to book ahead), you can take bikes and scooters and enjoy a great day in the countryside. Most of the cafes are currently offering a takeaway service – but note that the Savill Garden Kitchen is currently closed.
Godstone Farm – to the east of the Surrey border and just off junction 6 of the M25 lies Godstone Farm. As the name suggests the farm is host to goats, llama, piglets, bunnies to name a few, but the farm also has a range of outdoor play areas with zip wires, tire slides, sandpits and pirate ships. The outdoor play area has now reopened – and they have a few spaces available to pre-book (the reduced price entrance ticket includes a hot drink for adults and an ice cream for the kids). The farm trail re-opens on 12th April, although the indoor play areas will remain closed until further notice. Takeaway food and other drinks also available.
Abinger Roughs to Gomshall Walking Circuit - put your walking shoes on and enjoy the magnificent views provided on this 6.2 mile walk. Older kids might be able to complete the whole circuit, but for little legs the woodlands and vast open space will be a good place to burn off excess energy!
