New Year in Surrey: THE Best Ways to See out 2017 and Welcome in 2018

Once we’ve finished enjoying Christmas Day, it’s time to start looking ahead to seeing in the New Year. For many of us, we’ll be lucky enough to have annual leave from work over the festive period, which means it’s the perfect opportunity to enjoy some quality time with family and friends.

With this in mind, we’ve rounded up the best activities and days out in Surrey this Christmas and New Year. Here’s how to see out the last few days of 2017, and see in 2018 – with a bit of a difference!

Boxing Day

If you’ve got family and friends staying with you over the festive period, after the mayhem which is Christmas Day itself, you may well be looking to get out of the house and ward off cabin fever. Plenty of attractions in Surrey open their doors on Boxing Day, which means that you can get out and about and enjoy some time with your loved ones somewhere fun.

Why not take in one of the county’s many pantomimes? Pantomimes are certain to bring cheer to all, and can be enjoyed across the generations. Dick Whittington is a family favourite in Guildford, or you might like to see Cinderella in Camberley.

Alternatively, if you’re looking to blow off the cobwebs and work off the mince pies, why not get active with the Boxing Day walk at Winkworth Arboretum? Four legged doggy friends are also welcome, so it really is an event for all of the family.


The week between Christmas and New Year can sometimes be a bit of a void. However, if you’re going to be enjoying some time off this “Twixmas”, why not make the most of it? There’s plenty going on in Surrey during this time.

Culture vultures will enjoy Tchaikovsky’s wonderfully festive The Nutcracker and Giselle will be performed in Guildford by the Saint Petersburg Classic Ballet from 26th – 28th December.

Alternatively why not indulge in a festive afternoon tea? We love the look of the Christmas afternoon tea at Warren House which is suitable for all the family and includes turkey-and-stuffing sandwiches, snowmen cakes, chestnut macaroons and mulled wine trifle.

New Year

It’s always good to start the New Year off in unique fashion. For something completely dazzling, how about the Cirque de Lumiere in Guildford? Dress to impress, eat, drink, be merry and be entertained by an array of amazing artists.

Alternatively if style, sophistication and champagne bubbles are more your thing, how about saying goodbye to 2017 and seeing in 2018 at Denbies Wine Estate? You’ll enjoy a sparkling wine and canapés on arrival followed by a sumptuous four course meal, before dancing the old year away!
