Things to do on a sunny day in Surrey
When the sun comes out there are few better places to be than in Surrey. Plenty of outdoor fun attractions await you.
Enjoy a ride at a theme park
Perfect for the young and the young at heart. In Surrey you will find two theme parks, Thorpe Park with its thrill rides, The Swarm, Saw – the Ride and Colossus and Chessington World of Adventures with its themed lands as well as its Zoo and SEA LIFE centre. At both parks you will be able to twist and turn down roller coasters or get splashed on a water slide.
Swing through the tree tops
At Go Ape, near Farnham and Wild Wood Adventure you can experience the thrills of zip wires, rope bridges and more. Both adventure parks have courses designed for adults as well as juniors.
Go for a walk
Appreciate the tranquillity of a walk along a tow path or uncover the splendour of a glorious English Garden. Stunning views are the payoff if you climb Leith Hill, the highest point in South East England.

Wave and smile as you pass people on your journey on a narrow-gauge train. Great fun for young and old alike.
Visit the animals
Enjoy some fun down on the farm at Bocketts or Godstone Farms where you can see, ducks, pigs, cows and all the other farm favourites. At the British Wildlife Centre you will get to meet native British wildlife like the water vole and weasel.
Take to the water on a boat
