Family Friendly Spring Days Out

It’s that time of the year again when the sun is out for longer, the days are brighter, and the cold weather is starting to become a thing of the past. Spring is the ideal time to get out and about with the kids, so we’ve put together a list of fun-filled, family-friendly activities you can take part in the South of England.

Pet Some Furry Friends at Bocketts Farm

This working farm in the heart of the beautiful Surrey countryside is a wonderful place to visit with little ones. A variety of amazing animals, coupled with indoor and outdoor play areas, make Bocketts Farm the perfect family-friendly destination.

There’s plenty to see and do, from watching the pig race, hopping on board the tractor and trailer, cuddling cute little rabbits, and taking turns to feed the lovely farm animals such as lambs, piglets, chicks, and so many more. There are also some great play areas for the kids to enjoy, with trampolines, giant slides, indoor play barns and fun-filled outdoor adventure trails. 

Explore the Trails at Kew Gardens

The beautiful Royal Botanical Kew Gardens are a delight in the spring season, with vivid blooming flowers in every colour imaginable, unfurling green leaves and the musical sounds of birdsong filling the air. 

Get a breath of much-needed fresh air and venture outdoors with the kids to take in everything Kew Gardens has to offer during spring. There are various fun activities for all the family to enjoy together, whether that be a delicious little picnic amongst gorgeous natural woodland or a stroll through the sweetly scented bluebell woods. 

Children can even join Superworm and his friends on a spring trail through the gardens. Inspired by the best-selling book written by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, this adventure will take you to all the familiar scenes from the story, helping you learn about the vital role that animals and plants play in the natural world. 

Get Competitive at the Drift Golf Academy in Surrey

Located just half an hour’s drive from Leighwood Fields is the Drift Golf Academy – a fun, active and competitive activity day that the whole family will love.

Grab yourself a basket full of balls and get stuck in playing stimulating and rather competitive games of golf where you get to hit all sorts of targets and characters. Golf courses here use innovative Trackman ball tracking technology - a Doppler radar system that tracks and records golf ball motion and movement so you can improve your game! 

You can even play virtual golf courses from all over the world. Book a bay online now and look forward to a super fun day out with all the family!
