What to do in West Sussex with your kids

Having struggled to find a good list of things to do in West Sussex and Surrey for kids I thought I would start my own list and build on it over the next year.

I have highlighted which ones I have been too and really this will become a list of places I can use to plan day trips.

Thinking of things to do with kids can be difficult so hopefully you will find this useful.  

I really want to fill this up with as many exciting activities as possible so please do email me:
