Hey, we live in England and spring isn’t always about daffodils, bluebells and sunshine! Here are a few ideas to brighten those grey, dreary and rain on the window pane kind of days in Surrey

AirHop, Guildford

For those who tend to bounce around the walls on a rainy day, why not take it to the logical next step: AirHop’s inventive sea of indoor trampolines. There are 50 or so interconnected in their free jumping area alone – across the floor and up the walls! Tickets: prices vary

AirHop, 12 Midleton, Industrial Estate Road, Guildford GU2 8XW. Tel: 0330 223 3333. Web: airhop-guildford.com

Chobham Adventure Farm, Chobham

With two play frames, one for three-year-olds and under and a challenging frame for three-plus and adults, this is one of Surrey’s newest indoor play zones. With a vertical death drop, ‘construction site’ and space walking on bouncy pillows, adults are often entertained as much as their kids. Tickets: adults, £3; children (3+), £7

Chobham Adventure Farm, Bagshot Road, Chobham GU24 8DB. Tel: 01276 919212. Web: chobhamadventurefarm.co.uk

Craggy Island, Guildford

In a county not known for rocky outcrops, here’s the next best thing – and inclement weather has no impact on the 100 rope lines and 300-plus climbing routes. Tickets: non-members daily entry, £12

Craggy Island, Slyfield Industrial Estate, Moorfield Road, Guildford GU1 1RU. Tel: 0344 880 8866. Web: craggy-island.com

Let’s Race, Horley

From the fast-paced Monza to the English classic Silverstone, Let’s Race is a must for motorsport nuts. With a number of different driving experiences available, it’s perfect for group days out. Tickets: from £22.

Let’s Race, 59/61 Brighton Road, Horley RH6 7HJ. Tel: 01293 826800. Web: letsrace.co.uk

Top Golf, Addlestone

Combining a little light-hearted (depending on who your friends are!) competition with entertainment, Top Golf players hit micro¬chipped golf balls at targets for points. Tickets: adults, £5.50 per game; children, £4.50 per game

Top Golf, Moated Farm Drive, Addlestone KT15 2DW. Tel: 01932 858551. Web: topgolf.com
