Child friendly place halfway between Surrey and Dorset?

Any ideas? Somewhere for kids to run about, picnic, maybe inside/outside to allow for weather!

Not a theme park- maybe a farm/castle type place?

Marwell Zoo in Hampshire is nice.

Thanks rabbit- I did think of Marwell but not sure if friends are 'zoo' people though!

Moors Valley in New Forest?
There are quite a few nice Country Parks around Southampton - can't think of any names but one was featured on a World War 2 tv programme last year.
Spinnaker Tower?
Have fun smile

In Tech science/technology museum in Basingstoke

Romsey Rapids swimming pool

Paultons Park/Peppa Pig world

Moors Valley is very very biased to the Dorset side. The Spinnaker Tower is in Portsmouth and a good 50 miles in the wrong direction

Winchester and Basingstoke are both off the M3 for Surrey folk and about the same up the A31/M27 for the Dorset side smile
