Free things to do

If you're travelling on a budget and looking to keep the kids entertained, there are plenty of free things to do across South East England that will excite all the family.

Our current feature is on museums and art galleries, that can be both fascinating and fun as well as the perfect retreat on a rainy day. If you're heading to Worthing, Guildford or Aldershot this weekend, be sure to check out the following things to do for free:

Watts Gallery in Guildford is free for children (under 16s) to attend and widely regarded as one of the most beautiful small galleries in Europe with special exhibitions running throughout the year.

The Lightbox in nearby Woking has plenty to keep kids occupied and entertained with plenty of fun activities for a great day out.

The Army Medical Services Museum in Aldershot tells the story of military medicine, nursing, dental and veterinary science from 1660 until today.

Worthing Museum and Art Gallery is one of the South East's most varied museums with exhibitions rotating nine times a year as well as permanent displays of the internationally renowned costume collection, fine and decorative art, toys, social history, and archaeology.
