Things To Do In Half Term In Farnham, Surrey

2022, 2023, Families

The Christmas holidays seem to be just over and now the next half term is nearly upon us. If you are wondering how to keep your children busy in half term or things to do in half term in Farnham Surrey read on for loads of activities in the Farnham, Guildford, and Surrey areas.

Working as a Family Photographer in Farnham, Guildford & Surrey I am lucky to be able to take school holidays off. I am always looking for new things to do with Rosie who is 10. Mia our eldest at 17, now has a social life of her own and the time does go really fast from when she was Rosie’s age. So before I start crying and missing Mia being small here is a lovely list of fun things for the half term:

(The links to more info for each item are in the headings so give them a click)

WATTS GALLERY, COMPTON

  • For over 5 year olds
  • Take part in a creative Make Space workshop to add to a new Hall of Fame, pick up a family activity in the Galley to help look closer, or ‘drop in and draw’ on select mornings alongside a guiding artist.
