If you’re planning to visit us for a short or long stay this winter, you’ll want to keep occupied. We’ve taken a look at all the activities and events organised in the local area to ensure we offer only the best advice. There should be at least one thing one this page suitable for every guest this winter. Make sure you don’t forget to make any bookings in advance to avoid disappointment.


Visit Santa


There are many Santa’s grottos in and around the Gatwick area this Christmas. Any guests who plan to arrive with their children should take advantages of the festivities. Bocketts Farm Park is only a short drive away, and it always received amazing reviews. You can jump aboard the Santa Express and visit Father Christmas in his magical hay barn workshop. There are other Santa attractions at Godstone Farm, Hatchlands Park, and even Haslemere Museum.


See A Pantomime


The Surrey area has always played host to great actors and shows during the holiday season. This year is no exception, as we welcome two different Jack and the Beanstalk productions. You can see the first at Spectrum, where the entire cast will perform their roles on the ice. The Yvonne Arnaud Theatre is where you will find a more traditional portrayal of the fairy tale. Don’t forget we’ve also got Aladdin for a few nights at the Camberley Theatre – you might even see a few celebrities in the cast.

Go Shopping


If you still haven’t finished your Christmas shopping, there’s no need to worry. The surrounding towns and cities near Gatwick Airport always go the extra mile at this time of the year. You can expect to find some great deals during the month of December that are not to be missed. Shoppers should head towards Guildford Town Centre, Woking Town Centre, and Camberley Town Centre. There are lots of fantastic shops that are sure to sell everything you could want.


Grab Yourself A Festive Meal


Our chef cooks some very tasty dishes at this time of the year, and so you should always try the cuisine from our kitchen. However, there are some alluring party venues that offer upmarket dining during the winter season. In most instances, you’ll need to make your bookings in advance to avoid the rush. Even so, you shouldn’t overlook Gatton Manor, Botley Hill Farmhouse, or Barnett Hill.
