HALLOWEEN HALF TERM FUN @ HOBBLEDOWN EPSOM #REVIEW…

Posted by Kat Heath on 24 Oct 2022

This Sunday myself and my two boys, Harry & Elliott enjoyed a spooky afternoon of Halloween fun at Hobbledown.

Hobbledown, situated just off Horton Lane is a fantastic local attraction which understandably won the Trip Advisor Travellers choice award in 2021.  It really is an amazing place to take your children, come rain or shine with some great events lined up to keep your family entertained this October half term.

It was our first visit to Hobbledown and myself and the boys absolutely loved the Hobbleween spectacular.  There really was something for everyone and everything from the way the site was decorated to the events which took place were done with great detail!  It really was a afternoon well spent and we will definitely be back to experience more of what Hobbledown has to offer!
