Summer Family Fun

At Tendacare we believe that regular trips out are essential for a good quality of life. They also offer a great boost of Vitamin D during the summer.
 
We take our clients on shopping trips, for walks, a cup of coffee and to events that they're interested in. However, nothing beats a family trip with loved ones to make the most of gorgeous weather. 
 
This July is set to be yet another beautiful British summer, so for all our clients and their families, here are a few ideas for local days out.
 
Nonsuch Park
 
One of Surrey's most treasured venues, Nonsuch Palace was built by King Henry VIII and the surrounds used as a deer hunting ground. A beautiful Georgian mansion now stands as the centrepiece overlooking 300 acres of luscious land. Perfect for a picnic, a light stroll, or family photos, we cannot recommend Nonsuch enough. 
 
The Nonsuch Pantry, which adjoins the Mansion House, is their newly refurbished cafe. Ideal for a pit stop you could pop in for a fresh coffee, cake, ice-cream, or a little treat.
 
There are several access points to this site. There are two entrances in London Road leading to car parks and one in Ewell Road, Cheam, which also leads to car parking facilities.  Parking for disabled people only is available adjacent to the Mansion House.
 
Address: Ewell Road, Sutton, SM3 8AB.

Polesden Lacey – The National Trust 
 
Located near Dorking, the Polesden Lacey National Trust grounds boast a splendid yellow-washed Edwardian House surrounded by acres of land with beautiful summer flowers. Parking is £5, or free for National Trust members. Polesden Lacey is perfect for a light stroll, and the café near the car park serves delicious hot food from lunchtime onwards. The house itself often hosts art exhibitions which are very popular, so book early to avoid disappointment.
 
On Sunday 16th July between 2pm-4pm the air will be filled with the sound of relaxing music as Polesden Lacey hosts 'Lazy Jazz Sunday'.  Enjoy an afternoon listening to live music on a rug on the South Lawn.  The event is free, but normal admission fees to the grounds apply.  In the event of wet weather, the musicians will play inside the house so visitors can enjoy the sounds while exploring Mrs Greville's country home.
 
Address: Polesden Lacey, Great Bookham, near Dorking, Surrey, RH5 6BD

Goodnight Mister Tom at the Adrian Mann Theatre
