Surrey holiday activities

With another half term fast approaching Surrey is fortunate to boast loads of great family activities. If you haven’t yet seen the penguins at Birdworld, at Holt Pound, Farnham, Surrey, GU10 4LD maybe this spring is the time.

To be found on the Surrey border with Hampshire Birdworld one of the largest bird parks in the UK, and is great for a fun and informative day out. In addition to being able to walk around 26 acres of aviaries and beautiful landscaped gardens, visitors can admire over 800 birds and 180 species from around the world. Throughout the day there are opportunities to take part in educational feeding sessions.

With bird watching or birding as it is now more often called has been made more and more popular through programmes like the BBC’s Spring Watch and the RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch and at Birdworld there is lots to learn and engage with.  Some of the most popular Birdworld exhibits include The Terry Pratchett Owl Parliament, Penguin Beach and Flamingo Cove whilst. Underwater World and The Jenny Wren Farm also tend to prove popular with family visitors. 

Upon arrival at Birdworld you will be able to find the times and details of what is happening on the day that you visit.  There is so much to do a Birdworld that if you want a full day make sure you allow enough time for your visit and don’t miss out on any of their events.  They are open from 10am until 6pm (4.30pm during GMT) every day and you can buy tickets in advance online.
