Wander through the scenic botanic gardens at Wakehurst Place, a 20-minute drive from the hotel. Spot colourful butterflies and rare birds in the nature reserve, and stroll along peaceful walking trails through woodlands. You can admire the grand 16th-century mansion or take a look around the Millennium Seed Bank conservation centre. Kids can play on the climbing poles or have a go in the maze.
Kids can discover exotic lands, from Wild Asia to Pirates Cove, at Chessington World of Adventures, a 30-minute drive from the hotel. Ride the thrilling roller coasters, and check out the zoo's Sumatran tigers and striped skunks. Try the treetop adventure trails before undoing the good work at the Donut Shack. For a bigger feed, there's fried chicken and Mexican food, and loads in between.
It's around half an hour's drive from the hotel to the impressive Hever Castle & Gardens. The childhood home of Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII's second wife, the castle and its grounds will delight those interested in history, architecture or nature. Wander the opulent castle interiors and the ornamental gardens. Kids can run wild in the adventure playground or explore the mazes.
To avoid the hassle of driving around London, take a Gatwick Express train from Gatwick Airport into the city for some sightseeing. Trains run to London Victoria every 15 minutes in peak times, and the journey takes 30 minutes. If you end up catching a regular train back, be sure to have a valid ticket, since Gatwick Airport is outside of central London's fare zones.
