Days-out with Dad

Days Out With Dad

What better way to make your father’s or grandfather’s day than to treat him to a special day-out? With Father’s Day approaching on June 19, we’ve prepared a guide to perfect days-out in Surrey and Sussex to suit all tastes!

1. The foodie dad
This food and drink loving gent knows his filet mignon from his foie gras, has a wine rack to rival the best! He spends weekends at the local food market and he’s proud of his fine-food-fuelled belly. Father’s Day brunch and vineyard tour at Denbies on Sunday, June 19 – see:

2. The musical dad
A dad with an appreciation of the world of music – possibly contemporary, or perhaps classical but whatever era he appreciates, he does so with fervor – he’s vibrant and a lover of sound.

3. The petrol head dad
With a need for speed, this dad needs no introduction to fast cars and fast living. He will be able to talk for hours about cars, knowing all of the ins and out – plus he’s likely to look after your car too! Hever Castle super cars event on Sunday, June 19 – see:

4. The alternative dad
The alternative dad loves things alternative. He’s a fan of skateboarding, craft beer, tattoos (he has a growing collection of his own), possibly a beard and probably has cooler taste in music than you. Merz featuring Julian Sartorius at The Green Door Store, Brighton Wednesday, June 15 – see:

5. The retro dad
If your dad starts his sentences with “In my day” then he’s probably a retro dad, with a keen appreciation for good design. He is likely to struggle to identify with contemporary icons such as Adele. Father’s Day steam driver experience at Spa Valley Railway on Sunday, June 19 – see:

6. The lad dad
Fan of a few pints and a curry of a Friday evening, lad dad is best mates with your friends and is usually found in front of the telly or down the pub. He embarrasses you with his awful jokes. Tour of Brighton and Hove Albion’s Amex Stadium throughout June – see:

7. The sporty dad
This dad spends every moment he gets watching, playing and talking about sport. He’ll watch anything, no matter how obscure. Curling? Handball? Sporty Dad’s an expert in them all. The Arundel Cricket Festival Wednesday, June 22 – Sunday, June 26 – see:

8. The arty dad
The arty dad enjoys the finer things in life. He has a bookcase full of classic novels and obscure titles you’ve never heard of, an arthouse cinema DVD collection and an appreciation of good coffee. Glyndebourne Opera: Die Meistersinger Von Nurnberg selected dates between Thursday, June 2 and Monday, June 27 – see:
