Half term holiday activities in Sussex

On this page are listed over a dozen different sites describing their half term holiday activities in Sussex this Autumn - events and activities that are fun for families and children. I have personally visited these places, either with my own sons, when they were younger, or with my godchildren and friends.

Drusillas half term events and activities
Drusillas is a great place for kids at any time of the year. Check out their site for further details. Our sons used to adore day trips here! There are many animals, including the all-important meerkats! There are also great activity areas for those who need to let off a little steam! Many of the exhibits are under cover, so rainy weather shouldn't put you off.

What's on at Wilderness Woods
Wilderness Woods is a great place to visit; there's a lovely playground, great cafe and they sell wooden structures for the garden, such as rose arches, as well as Xmas trees in December. My godson had a wonderful time at the Survival course last year. Check their site for half term holiday activities in Sussex.

Bluebell Railway
Trains run every hour, on the hour from 11am-4pm. For a discount on adult tickets, book 8 days in advance. Children of all ages will absolutely love this ... even those who are simply 'children at heart' - I'm taking my elderly parents for a surprise afternoon tea on a steam train for a birthday treat in a few weeks!

Nyman's Gardens
Beautiful gardens with great places to explore and wonderful for hide-and-seek! Good weather certainly helps, but even in the rain you can don wellie boots and macs and still have a lovely rainy day walk. Delicious National Trust restaurant, great gift shop, and of course, the all-important plants for sale! National Trust gardens are really the ideal venue for the whole family - from grandparents to little ones.

Spring Barn Farm activities
Great place for younger families and children ... they are organising some fun activities for half term and halloween so check out their site. They also offer camping in the summer.

Tulley's Farm half term holiday activities
We used to visit the Maize Maze at Tulley's Farm, when our sons were younger ... that's something to look forward to in the summer! Check out their site for events during this half term week.

Stoneywish Nature Reserve, Ditchling
Spring is a wonderful time to visit Ditchling's very own nature reserve. Recent rains combined with migrating water birds, make this a lovely day or afternoon out ... take a look at their website to see some of the things you can do there. If you go when the weather's fairly good, then you can take a picnic and sit in one of the fields while the kids play. You can also camp at Stoneywish now.

The Observatory Science Centre - Herstmonceux
A fascinating place for children and adults alike, which also several special scientific activities during the half-term week. Check out their site; they have a continuous calendar of events throughout the year. We organised a couple of Birthday celebrations for our sons and their friends which they all loved!

Blue Reef Aquarium, Hastings I haven't actually been here but have heard good reports!
