Family Days Out in Our Local Area
If you’re thinking about moving to Surrey, you’ll already be aware of many of the benefits that come from living here. Transport links are good, the towns are friendly, there’s plenty of attractive countryside to explore and you’ll still be pleasingly close to London. If you have young children, you may not be aware that there’s an excellent selection of family days out to enjoy. Here are some of our favourites.
Chessington World of Adventures
Once known for being the largest private zoo in England, Chessington World of Adventures is now a hugely popular theme park with plenty of white-knuckle rides for those seeking a few thrills. The zoo opened in 1931, while the theme park came into being in 1987. It’s just a 20-minute car journey from our offices in Walton-on-Thames High Street.
Thorpe Park Resort
The same distance from us but in the opposite direction, Thorpe Park is another popular theme park. Highlights include the water chute Tidal Wave, the somewhat scary Derren Brown’s Ghost Train and several impressive rollercoasters such as Colossus, Nemesis Inferno and Stealth. Thorpe Park, at one time nothing more than a gravel pit, was opened in 1979.
Mr Mulligan’s Pirate Golf
Golf with an exciting twist is perfect for a family day out. Mr Mulligan’s Pirate Golf is located in Woking, just nine miles from the centre of Walton-on-Thames. It features 18 holes of timber-shivering fun for adults and kids alike, along with plenty of parking and a bar and restaurant for some much-needed rest and recuperation after pounding the fairways.
RHS Garden Wisley
While mums and dads will enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this idyllic venue, there are still plenty of things to keep the kids occupied at Wisley. The Glasshouse is home to a collection of rare and endangered plants, while some of the gardens at Battleston Hill are reminiscent of a jungle. Wisley covers an area of 240 acres, so there’s always something worth exploring here. It’s less than nine miles from our office.
Wizzkidz Play Centre
Located just a mile or so from us in Walton Lane, Wizzkidz Play Centre is perfect for the younger children. It offers so many games and activities to enjoy, and there’s an excellent café for mums and dads to enjoy while the little ones have their fun. If your youngsters like bouncy castles, ball pits and soft play, they’re going to fall in love with this place.
