Snowdrop Day at Gatton Park

If you are looking for things to do with your children in Surrey and its neighbouring counties this coming weekend, we have a great range of family friendly events to choose from.

Well, it's the last week of the half term already for those of you with children in school or nursery. There's plenty to do with pre-schoolers throughout this week as well as lots of activities at the weekend for the slightly older ones. We've picked out the main events here but please check the full calendarfor more inspiration and more details.

All week 

Enjoy a Winter Walk at RHS Wisley. Explore this seasonal walk full of winter scents, colours and textures. With architectural outlines softened by modern mass plantings, there are many views to enjoy. Free with normal Garden entry, and if you book in advance there is a 10% discount.

The Great Brick Safari is at RHS Wisley and runs until March 3. Embark on a journey inside the Glasshouse to search for more than 40 LEGO® brick sculptures. See if you can spot an elephant, lions, meerkats, turtles and a gorilla and learn more about the animal and plants. You can also join a bricks making workshop and have your photo taken in the bricks jeep.

A plastic bag swap scheme is running in Camberley until Friday. The Square is inviting shoppers to swap their plastic bags for a free reusable shopping bag. To receive a reusable shopping bag, shoppers will need to take a total of five plastic bags to The Square’s customer service desk.
