As we all know the Great British weather can be, shall we say “Temperamental”. So, it’s always best to have a few indoor and Rainy-day activities under our belt, for when you’ve had enough of splashing in muddy puddles. I thought I’d take a look at a few ideas across the South Downs so you can all have a list ready and prepared. There’s so much around to see and do, hopefully this list will have ideas for everyone to enjoy, from Soft play to Cathedral’s I’ll definitely have something for you. So, let’s start with:
Buildings and Cathedrals
We have some beautiful building’s that are worth a visit across the South downs, you can learn about the history of the families that once lived there, see how the world use to work. Explore the amazing structures of the Cathedral’s, look and explore in wonderment how they were built and how they’ve survived all these years.
Chichester Cathedral – www.chichestercathedral.org.uk
Wincester Cathedral – www.winchester-cathedral.org.uk
Upper Park House and Garden – www.nationaltrust.org.uk/uppark-house-and-garden
Anne of Cleeves House – www.sussexpast.co.uk/properties-to-discover/anne-of-cleves-house
Petworth House – www.nationaltrust.org.uk/petworth-house-and-park
If buildings aren’t your thing but you still love to learn more and explore why not try out a few of our many Museums, we have one in most areas of the South Downs, some being very tiny although some will give you a nice long rainy day activity, here is a few to get you started;

But the big question on a rainy day is what to do with the Kids!! How do you keep them entertain and all enjoy a good day out? Well we have plenty from Soft play and Imagination Play for the younger ones, to ten pin bowling, Trampolining or maybe a trip to the cinema for those of you with young adults!! How about having a go at painting pottery and craft making. Here are a few starter points for you to have a look through.
Soft Play and Imagination
Older Children and Family Days
Now maybe just maybe it’s just you or you that special person looking for something to do why not go for a Spa Day? Relax and unwind while the world around you continues its day in the rain.
What ever the weather in the South Downs there is always a great day ahead and an adventure to be had. Happy Adventuring!
