Sunday is synonymous with relaxation, respite, strolls, afternoon drives, and scrumptious Sunday lunches. Many of us lucky enough to enjoy weekends off look to spend them out and about with our family and friends, or enjoying the freedom with the children, before heading back into the new working week.

If you are heading out in Surrey this weekend then here are a few ideas to make the best of your leisurely Sunday.

Learn about Native Wildlife at the British Wildlife Centre

The British Wildlife Centre is a great choice for spending a day out with the children and is only open to the public over the weekend; so a great Sunday activity to share with their friends at school on Monday morning. The centre offers people the opportunity to get up close to, and learn about, some of Britain’s very own native wildlife. The centre aims to educate people on conservation and encourage the protection of the wildlife that inhabits the UK.

It is a great place for budding photographers to capture snaps of otherwise fairly illusive animals within a natural environment, as well as offering play areas for the children to enjoy and picnic areas for you to grab a quick bite to eat.

Have a Crafty Sunday lunch

Sunday lunch is for sharing… with a craft ale and your favourite people. Get yourself a table and experience a Sunday lunch that you haven’t had to cook yourself. The Flintgate in Surrey offers a traditional Sunday lunch and a whole range of local craft ales and ciders, some of which are brewed in their very own brewery! They also offer a wide variety of vegan and vegetarian choices of both food and drink to ensure that no one in your party is left disappointed. You can book a table or arrange to collect it to take away and enjoy at your leisure at

Take a Stroll Around The Virginia Water Lake

The Windsor Great Park is the ideal destination for your Sunday stroll and to burn off that roast dinner, and the Virginia Water Lake is a picturesque and idyllic spot for families to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon. Children can admire the 100ft tall Virginia Totem pole and the cascade waterfall feature and adults can enjoy the beautiful bloom of the Savill Gardens. Visitors are welcome all year round and it is dog friendly, so also perfect for exercising your four-legged friends.

Take it up a Gear at Mercedes-Benz World

Sundays don’t just have to be about leisure. Why not up the adrenaline and increase the pace a little with a driving experience at Mercedes-Benz World? Under 17’s can get behind the wheel with a professional instructor and even the littlest members of your group can try out a battery powered Mercedes on their custom-made indoor track. For the adults there are 4 x 4 experiences, chances to test your manoeuvring skills, or just get a speed fix with a range of driving packages to choose from. An opportunity to take your Sunday afternoon drive to the next level.

Whatever you like to do with your Sunday, Surrey has a host of destinations and activities to keep you smiling right through until Monday morning. Visit a museum, take a walk round one of the many lakes and woodlands, dine out with friends and family and enjoy your break before the new week begins.

There's nothing better than a weekend spent at a spa and total relaxation and happy thoughts is a way of life to me. It's lucky I love cats really with a name like mine! Happily married with my three fur babies to keep us company.
