AirHop, Guildford

For those who tend to bounce around the walls on a rainy day, why not take it to the logical next step: AirHop’s inventive sea of indoor trampolines. There are 50 or so interconnected in their free jumping area alone – across the floor and up the walls! Tickets: prices vary

Chobham Adventure Farm, Chobham

With two play frames, one for three-year-olds and under and a challenging frame for three-plus and adults, this is one of Surrey’s newest indoor play zones. With a vertical death drop, ‘construction site’ and space walking on bouncy pillows, adults are often entertained as much as their kids. Tickets: adults, £3; children (3+), £7

Craggy Island, Guildford

In a county not known for rocky outcrops, here’s the next best thing – and inclement weather has no impact on the 100 rope lines and 300-plus climbing routes. Tickets: non-members daily entry, £12
