But if you're a more conscientious parent, Grange Gardens is good place for you children. If you're able to drive Paradise Park (more like purgatory) has soft play areas for toddlers and older children. If you buy an annual pass, you can go as often as you like - it can work out as good value for money, if you can stand it.

Pells pool. Tide Mills beach. Friston forest. Half term activities at Drusillas, spring Barn farm, Zu studios, many National Trust houses. A walk along the river. A cycle ride to Kingston. The Booth museum in Brighton. The castle in Lewes. Horse riding at Hamsey stables. Fishing off Seaford beach.

I don't think many five year olds will be interested in visiting NT houses. I don't think many parents will want to pay the admission charges at Drusillas either!

Belladonna - I don't think cycling or horse riding will be easy with a five-year-old and a one-year-old and my boys were bored to death when they visited National Trust Houses, but I'd agree with Friston Forest, Spring Barn Farm and Tide Mills.
Drusilla's is massively overpriced. The used to have reasonably-priced annual membership cards for adults and free entry up to the age of three, so I was able to take my son almost every week up until he was nearly four (by which time he started to look too old). Sadly, they've now rumbled that and it's up to two years. Plus they've got rid of the fire engine, which is a big mistake!
If you want to go there, the entrance prices are much cheaper in January.

I find your first remark utterly vile and if I were running this forum I would ban you. You are either using me to make... more
I like the walk along the ouse to Hamsey church, the view from the top of the Castle, Pells pool, the antique shops and boot fair, the lion in the window of the 15c bookshop, keere street
