Things to do in school holidays at Chessington

Whether it’s the Easter holidays or the Christmas break we have activities for everyone, young and old and the fun never stops.

Everyone knows we’re famous for our Theme Park packed with fantastic rides, themed lands, restaurants and gift shops but did you know that the Theme Park opens before the Easter Holidays and closes after Halloween?

Why not visit our zoo as an end of term treat?

The zoo boasts over a thousand animals including tiger, lion, rhino, zebra, giraffe, gorilla, penguin, sea lion, snake, spider and meerkat amongst them. With our zoo days you can experience all of these great animals all year round including February half term.

A theme park and a zoo, do you also have a SeaLife Centre?

We are also proud to include a SEA LIFE centre on the resort featuring exhibitions, interactive rock pools, daily talks, feeding sessions and an amazing walkthrough ocean tunnel.

What School holiday activities do you run?

As well as the Theme Park, the Zoo and the SEA LIFE centre we also entertain young and old alike with daily live shows and events throughout the park.

When are the school holidays?

School holidays vary across the British Isles, but as a general rule February half term is mid-February, Easter school holidays begin at the end of March, the summer half term is at the end of May and the Summer holidays are from the end of July to September. The autumn half term lands mid-October and the Christmas holiday starts mid-way through December until early January.
