Half term family events in Sussex
Posted 16 October 2015 by Lauren Shoosmith
Are anyone else’s children already counting down the days until half term?? Let’s keep our fingers crossed that we will get those crisp, dry Autumn days that still allow for days out! Plenty of attractions in Sussex offer special events during half term week – Fisher’s Farm (Wisborough Green, West Sussex) have their “Halloween Happy Hauntings” event, which includes pumpkin carving, a super scary ghost train and daily spooky shows in their in-house theatre. Even for rainy days, Fishers Farm still offer plenty to do with soft play areas and the animal encounters barn.
Over in East Sussex, Drusillas Park in Alfriston will also have Halloween themed activities in their “Shriek Week”. A Haunted House, spooky maze and extra special creepy crawlies will all be present at the park, in addition to the regular attractions there including train rides on Thomas, Hello Kitty Land and of course the zoo!
For wildlife lovers, the RSPB Pulborough Brooks has daily activities for families – bug hunting and pond dipping included! A great way for kids (and adults!) to enjoy the Sussex countryside, get some fresh air and perhaps learn something about nature.
If you are staying around Chichester, then you may like to know that the recent Celebration of Sussex Life awards named the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum as Sussex’s Visitor Attraction of the year earlier this month. The museum is offering some great ‘hands on’ family activities during half term including making a mini Guy Fawkes and an Autumn scavenger hunt.
If you are staying in one of our cottages in East or West Sussex in half term, we are sure you’ll be spoilt for choice with things to do. If you haven’t yet made a booking, then we do still have some availability for either a week, or a short break at some of our cottages – click here to find your perfect cottage.
