Surrey Life - - Things To Do -

PET­RI­FY­ING PUMP­KINS Carv­ing a pump­kin is ar­guably one of the best things about Hal­loween. Visit Wey­bridge’s Crock­ford Bridge Farm and join in with its Amer­i­can-style Pump­kin Patch Event, pick from over 10,000 pump­kins grown at Gar­sons in Esher or take a trac­tor ride to the pump­kin patch at Se­cretts in Mil­ford.

SPOOKY SPORTS Make space for plenty of trick-or-treat con­fec­tionery and a slice of pump­kin pie by sign­ing up for some sport­ing ac­tiv­i­ties this Hal­loween. A spook­tac­u­lar 2k fam­ily fun run will take place at Dap­dune Wharf as dark­ness falls on Sat­ur­day, Oc­to­ber 27, and at Den­bies Vine­yard, ghosts, zom­bies and vam­pires will be on hand to help run­ners along the route of a 10k race.

TER­RI­FY­ING THEME PARKS If roller­coast­ers aren’t enough to give you the shiv­ers, maybe some of the creepy Hal­loween ac­tiv­i­ties at Sur­rey’s ad­ven­ture parks will leave you scream­ing for more. Chess­ing­ton World of Ad­ven­tures will be open late on se­lected dates from Oc­to­ber 13 to 31 for a spine-chill­ing pro­gramme of events and rides. Thorpe Park’s ev­er­pop­u­lar Fright Nights will once again wel­come a se­ries of mazes, fea­tur­ing hor­ri­fy­ingly real zom­bies from ABC’S The Walk­ing Dead.
