For the rainy days


Chobham Adventure Farm

surrey half term activities indoors rainJust recently opened, this is a great place for little ones and older children to burn off steam in a safe environment. The indoor area has 2 play frames, one for under 2’s and another more challenging frame for children and adults. Look out for the vertical death drop slide, my little one took a shine to this slide, I could barely watch!

There is also an outdoor play area with a massive sandpit with slides and construction site, 2 bouncing pillows and a small and large frame with zipwires. In addition, they will be opening an animal farm section this year. There is also a restaurant which serves tasty homemade food – the pizza and cake get the thumbs up from me!

Where: Bagshot Road, Chobham, Surrey, GU24 8DB

Price: 6mths -2yrs £2.50, children (3yrs -18yrs) £6.50, Adults £4
